MSU Riot Consequnces
(2008-06-23)
(wgvu) - A Michigan State University student
has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for throwing an empty beer
bottle during a fracas in April.
The Lansing State Journal says 18-year-old Shane Patrick Rauss
of Wixom is the first to be sentenced in connection with April's
Cedar Fest disturbance. Rauss pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.
Police say a 4,000-student party turned violent during the early
morning of April 6. Police officers were pelted with bottles, cans
and bricks near the Michigan State campus.
Rauss' attorney, Matthew McGivney, says his client doesn't wish
to make any public statements.
Rauss also received one year of probation and must pay almost
$2,000 in fines. He has been suspended from Michigan State and
cannot take classes at any public university in the state for one
year.
