Sean-Paul Gott, Ryan Matthew Isto

Two former LSU fraternity brothers who pleaded no contest to misdemeanor hazing in the 2017 alcohol-related hazing death of fraternity pledge Max Gruver are free after each serving the maximum 30 days in prison. 

Sean-Paul Gott and Ryan Isto were released from East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Sunday, East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office records show. Each of the former Phi Delta Theta fraternity brothers was sentenced July 26 to the prison term, with credit for time served, plus a $100 fine, for their roles in handing out alcohol to the pledges.   

Former LSU student Matthew Naquin, who was convicted on July 17 of negligent homicide in the death of Gruver, is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 16.
