Man changes plea to OU library incident
(2007-12-13)
(WOUB) - A former Ohio University student has pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of persistent disorderly conduct.

Twenty-five-year-old Edward Mahony of Medina was cited for menacing and ethnic intimidation after an incident with two African-American women students in OU's Alden Library last spring. He allegedly made racial slurs and physical threats against the women.

After a change of plea, Athens County Municipal Court Judge William Grim fined Mahony $250.

Mahony went on trial last month but the jury couldn't reach a verdict.
