In December, Knightnews.com broke the story about Michael Minot, 27, and Brandon Geers, 25, getting arrested for sneaking into the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority house.
The men, who were alumni of UCF and part of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, were familiar with the house, being that their fraternity lived in that house until they were kicked off due to a hazing scandal in 2007.
Minot was in possession of a firearm, but it did not play a part in the trespassing. The men were only caught with a Wii gaming system, decorative pot, trophy, and flower vase. The trespassing was reported by local Waste Management man Richard J. Nacewicz.

On May 7th, 2012, the suspects pled not guilty, before they decided with prosecutors to plead no contest to the lesser charges of trespass in an occupied structure and petit theft. The judge withheld adjudication.
Michael Minot pled no contest and received one year of supervised probation, 150 hours of community service, and has been forever banned from the UCF campus.
Brandon Geers pled no contest and received one year of supervised probation, 150 hours of community service, court costs, and has also been forever banned from the UCF campus.
The charge on Minot for having a gun in his car, which was stored properly, was dropped altogether by the prosecutor.
