April 22, 2008

Dear ,

As previously indicated, the Judicial Board reconvened to discuss the sanction assigned to the ­­­____________ on February 13, 2008, specifically that the _______________ “must write a letter of apology addressed to the Lawrence community to be printed in The Lawrentian.  The letter should apologize for violating the Disruptive Behavior policy of the Social Code and explain the consequences of this behavior.  The letter must be submitted to Dean Truesdell no later than March 4, 2008.”  While the Board is aware that a letter was submitted to the newspaper, we feel that it was insincere and not done in the intended spirit.  The sanction stated that the letter be submitted to Dean Truesdell by a prescribed date (so that the letter can be reviewed prior to publication), and your group did not comply with that stipulation.  The Board feels that your group has not learned from this experience.

As a result, the Judicial Board has decided that an additional sanction of 20 hours of service with Physical Plant is appropriate.  The number of required hours of service applies to your group as a whole and may be divided among members as your group sees fit.  The service requirement must be completed no later than June 6, 2008.  Failure to complete this sanction will result in further sanctioning of your group at the onset of the 2008-09 academic year.

If you wish to appeal this decision you must inform the President, in writing, within three days of receiving this letter.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me or the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, Nancy Truesdell.

May 2, 2005

Dear ,

The Judical Board re-convened on May 1, 2005 to consider your failure to complete the sanction of community service as outlined in the April 4, 2005 letter.  The Board wishes to communicate its extreme disappointment in your disregard for its most recent sanction related to your violations.  While the Board understands that near the end of the first week of your required service you indicated that you became physically unable to perform manual labor, it is clear that you did not even make plans to complete the hours as you had not contacted Mr. Ginke this term.

The Board has decided that in place of the community service, $500 ($100 for each week of your previously sanctioned service) will be assessed to your student account.  As the sanction is intended to be educational, the money will be designated for campus improvements that relate to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Your original parking violations often inconvenienced campus community members with disabilities; therefore, the funds will be earmarked for their benefit.

In addition, you will continue to be on disciplinary probation for the remainder of the 2004-2005 academic year.  Further violation of the social code shall result in a minimum penalty of suspension.  If you have any questions, please contact Dean Truesdell or me.
