Penn State: Frat members who posted nude Facebook photos of women will be held accountable

A Penn State official says the university intends to hold accountable the fraternity members who used a private, invitation-only Facebook page to post photos of nude and partly nude women, some apparently asleep or passed out.

Kappa Delta Rho was suspended for a year Tuesday after police began investigating the allegations. A former member tipped police off to the page, telling them in January that it had been used by members to share photos of "unsuspecting victims."

The fraternity's national executive director, Joe Rosenberg, told the Penn State chapter in a letter that it would be banned from most activities for the near future and must reorganize.

According to a police warrant, the fraternity's page had 144 active members that included both students and alumni.
