Casteen seeks notification on crimes
University of Virginia President John T. Casteen met with Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) today to ask him to change state law so college officials would be notified if students are arrested.
Casteen said Tuesday that if he knew that Huguely had been arrested in 2008 for trying to hurt a police officer, he would have been suspended, perhaps even expelled.
McDonnell said he plans to speak to other university presidents in the coming weeks, and at a campus safety conference next month in Richmond. The soonest the General Assembly would be able to change the law would be next January, unless McDonnell calls legislators back for a special session later this year.
