ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Three former UAlbany women accused in the CDTA bus attack have been found accountable for violations of the Student Code of Conduct, according to the school.
University President Robert Jones says Ariel Agudio and Asha Burwell have been dismissed from the University. Alexis Briggs has been suspended for two years.
The Vice President for Student Affairs concurred with the findings and recommendations from the Student Conduct Board. The final determination on the findings was released Thursday.
The president made the announcement in a campus letter.
“I am sharing this information to reaffirm our institution’s commitment to accountability and to providing a fair, safe, and welcome educational environment for all.” President Jones said. “This incident was highly visible and raised many concerns for people on campus and in the community.”
The three women pleaded not guilty after appearing in court on Wednesday. They were indicted earlier in the week.
