TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Attorneys for one of the nine men charged in connection to FSU fraternity pledge Andrew Coffey's death filed a motion to dismiss the hazing charges.

Anthony Petagine is one of the four suspects in the case who did not take the state's plea offer of 60 days in jail and two years probation.

Petagine's lawyer, Brian Tannebaum, filed a motion stating the charges against Petagine should be dismissed because there was no "act" or "intent" to haze Andrew Coffey.

Tannebaum told WTXL in an interview last month that Petagine was "not at the party, so nobody saw him there."

He's referring to the night when Coffey died.
