Fraternity member in Santulli case pleads guilty to misdemeanors


One of the University of Missouri fraternity members accused in the Danny Santulli case pleaded guilty to a pair of misdemeanors Tuesday.

Alec Bradley Wetzler, 21, of St. Louis, pleaded guilty to supplying liquor to a minor and buying liquor as a minor, both misdemeanors. A sentencing hearing is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 6.

Santulli was left disabled following an alleged hazing incident at Phi Gamma Delta in 2021. Santulli was left unable to walk, talk or see after suffering a traumatic brain injury that night.

Another fraternity member, Thomas A. Shultz, 22, of Chesterfield, pleaded guilty Monday to supplying alcohol to a minor. He was sentenced to a year of probation along with 30 days of shock jail time and 100 hours of community service. He'll spend a year in jail if he violates probation. He is currently in the Boone County Jail.

The fraternity was kicked off campus and its recognition from its national organization was withdrawn.

The first trial date for one of the defendants in the case was set earlier this month. Ryan Delanty, Santulli's "pledge dad" at the fraternity known as FIJI, is scheduled to go to trial in December.
