Chi Psi suspension lifted after found not guilty for 2 of 3 charges


After an investigation into alleged code of conduct violations, the interim suspension against Chi Psi fraternity has been lifted, according to a Lehigh Greeks blog post.

The chapter had been placed on suspension Nov. 23 for allegations including “trespassing and assault motivated by retaliation; engaging in harassment and discrimination; and endangering the health and safety of students,” the post says.

Two of the three charges were investigated, and the chapter was found not guilty of either. The third is still under review, but it does not require the chapter’s activities be suspended in the interim.

Earlier this month Brian Githens, ’17, a member of Chi Psi and the Lehigh football team, was charged with a felony count of burglary, simple assault and criminal mischief after he allegedly broke into an off-campus student residence and assaulted its residents. According to court records, Githens told police he entered the home seeking retribution for an assault on his fraternity president, which took place Nov. 5.
