Judicial Affairs Reports 23 Cases Stemming From May Hill Riots

July 8, 1997

Twenty-three cases stemming from the May 3-5 University Hill riots have been or are being reviewed by the Office of Judicial Affairs at the University of Colorado at Boulder, according to Andrea Goldblum, director of judicial affairs.

As of July 1, the Judicial Affairs Office reported the status of the 23 cases as follows:

• Four suspensions, each for one year, which do not remain permanently on the students’ records

• One expulsion, which remains a permanent part of the student’s record

• Nine on probation, including some cases of restitution for damage to property, for amounts in the hundreds of dollars. Probationary periods range from one semester to the remainder of the student’s college career.

• One reprimand

• Two dismissals

• And six outstanding cases, expected to be decided in the next two weeks, Goldblum said.

Students may appeal the decisions of the Judicial Affairs Office to the Student Conduct Hearing Board to further review their cases.

Goldblum said an appeal has been made in one of the cases and a hearing will be set in the next month.

The University Code of Conduct states that “Students may be held accountable to both civil and criminal authorities as well as to the University by breaking a law that also violates the University standards of conduct. Disciplinary action by the University will not be subject to challenge or postponement on the grounds that criminal charges involving the same incident have been dismissed, reduced, or are pending in court.
