WCU Student Sentenced for Beating Up Roommate

Former West Chester University student Zachery Russell was sentenced to three to 23 months in Chester County Prison after he attacked his roommate last April.

The Daily Local reports that former West Chester University Student Zachery Russell was sentenced to three to 23 months in prison after he attacked his roommate in their dorm in Brandywine Hall last April.

According to the Daily Local, Russell attacked his former roommate after the roommate notified the school that he would like new living arangements due to Russell's alleged drug and alcohol abuse.

According to the Daily Local:

“This was an all-out, unprovoked attack,” said Deputy District Attorney Michelle Frei, describing what happened in the Brandywine Hall dormitory at WCU in April. “It was not a one-punch case.”

Russell, 20, of Gilbertsville pleaded guilty in December to charges of simple assault, resisting arrest, and giving false identification to police. His victim, Michael Giovinco Jr. suffered severe bruises and cuts to his face from the pummeling Russell delivered, Frei said.
