Spielman's attorney, Mark Sutter, said in a statement that Spielman "was shocked to hear of these charges after an investigation by Wheaton College exonerated him over one year ago."
Spielman is the son of former NFL player Chris Spielman.
"Regardless, Noah has willingly surrendered to law enforcement to face these allegations, and he will continue to cooperate with authorities moving forward," the statement said. "Mr. Spielman and his family have full faith and confidence in the legal process and the DuPage County criminal justice system."
During a news conference Sept. 20, Sutter also questioned why it took so long for charges to be filed.
"This is something that's been lingering for over a year and a half," he said. "There were multiple investigations. The NCAA did an investigation. Wheaton College did an investigation. He was exonerated in both arenas. And now these charges have somehow [been] resurrected... At the time, when criminal charges likely could have been levied, they weren't. I don't know what the impetus was for the delay. I certainly will investigate that and find out why there was a delay. The fact is they were punished. They were handled internally."
Sutter said he didn't know how the players were punished internally.
In an email, Meghan Durham, assistant director of public and media relations for the NCAA, said the responsibility to address a hazing incident rests with a member school and local authorities.
"If we receive a complaint about hazing, the NCAA informs the school to address it according to school policy," Durham said in the email. "The NCAA does provide resources to educate member schools about hazing prevention."
