A J-Board justice earlier today confirmed that on April 1st Michael A. Wilner will be brought before the school's disciplinary system, or J-Board, on charges that he allegedly assaulted a female student in late February.
Dean Fid Castro sent out emails calling for volunteers from amongst the J-Board justice pool and will then follow up with the justices he chooses. The worst possible punishment is expulsion.
It typically takes between 10 and 30 days before a J-Board date is set. Set thirty-two days after the incident, it is the longest lag between incident and punishment in recent memory, according to another J-Board justice. There is no word yet on what will as this case moves through the criminal justice system in parallel.
According to an R.A., with knowledge of what happened, Wilner offered to apologize to the alleged victim -- but not if it would be taken as an admission of guilt.
In other news, the decision, according to the source, to end comment moderation was made by the new editor-in-chief of the Forum, Heath Hyatt CMC '12.
