Immunity from Prosecution Available

The court may grant immunity from prosecution for the offense to each person who is subpoenaed to testify for the prosecution and who does testify for the prosecution. Any person who voluntarily reports a specific hazing incident involving a student in an educational institution to the Dean of Students or other appropriate official of the institution is immune from civil or criminal liability that might otherwise be incurred or imposed as a result of the reported hazing incident if the person: (1) reports the incident before being contacted by the institution concerning the incident or otherwise being included in the institution's investigation of the incident; and (2) as determined by the Associate Vice President for Student Life/Dean of Students or other appropriate official of the institution designated by the institution, cooperates in good faith throughout any institutional process regarding the incident. Immunity under extends to participation in any judicial proceeding resulting from the report. A person is not immune if the person: (1) reports the person's own act of hazing; or (2) reports an incident of hazing in bad faith or with malice.
