photos. so far no female students have been charged. something that is not settling well with one parent who did not want to be identified. >> we need to step back and really take a full look at this. i mean, the girls are just as responsible as the boys. >> reporter: many of the students who are charged have retained attorneys and "action news" is told they're cooperating with police but invasion of privacy is third degree crime and could come with jail time for that 18-year-old student who has been charged. tam. >> okay, thank you erin. the penn state fraternity linked to a nude photo scandal has been suspended for three years. school officials say some kappa delta rho members ran a secret facebook page full of photos. the investigation revealed some members engaged in sexual harassment and hazing. >> police identified the attackerrer in a stabbing and suicide near yale university. the man was tyler carlisle. the recent grad had returned
