Purdue Sigma Nu Member Sentenced To Four Years After Battery
Eric Todderud (who is part of the recently kicked off Purdue frat Sigma Nu) received his sentence Wednesday for battery against two guests at Purdue and an unrelated vandalism of a car last fall.
Todderud, 22, of Fishers pleaded guilty in April to criminal recklessness resulting in serious bodily injury and two misdemeanors — battery resulting in bodily injury and criminal mischief.
Todderud will serve three of the four years. Tippecanoe Superior 1 Judge Randy Williams ordered Todderud to spend 420 days in the Indiana Department of Correction, 365 days at the community correction facility and 310 days on probation. Williams ordered a one-year sentence for criminal mischief to be served consecutively with the other sentences, which amounts to a three-year sentence.
The night of Sept. 13, 2013, Todderud attacked two guests at the Sigma Nu house, punching one so hard that he had to have three teeth extracted and suffered from headaches for three months after the attack.
Then on Oct. 1, 2014, Purdue police caught Todderud vandalizing a car parked at Pierce and Harrison streets.
Additionally, Todderud is ordered to pay restitution of $10,801.21 to his battery victim, and $6,494.38 to the car owner’s insurance company.
The national Sigma Nu organization suspended the Purdue chapter in March for acts of hazing, illegal drug use and alcohol consumption by minors in fall 2014.
