Rescinding Offers of Admissions When Prior Criminality Is Revealed.
Stokes, Jerome W. D.; Groves, Allen W.
West's Education Law Quarterly, v5 n2 p297-318 Apr 1996
Explores the question of responsibility if a college-admission officer makes the "wrong" decision and a once-violent applicant enrolled as a student turns violent again. Uses the cases of Gina Grant, who had murdered her mother, and Richie Parker, convicted of sexual assault, to illustrate the need for clear legal standards to guide the decision-making process.
