There's more fallout from an attack on a student inside a community college restroom.
St. Louis Community College Chancellor Myrtle Dorsey announced in a letter Monday that the president of the Meramec campus, where the attack occurred, has resigned. Meramec President George Wasson's resignation is effective immediately.
This follows sharp criticism about the college’s handling of the attack. The suspect, 18 year old Jevon Mallory, had been taken into custody, immediately after the incident, but was released by campus police with a warning.
He was re-arrested five days later and is currently in jail, facing felony assault charges.
Another issue of contention is the fact that no campus alerts had been issued after the attack.
Wildwood Campus President Pam McIntyre will take over as interim president of the Meramec campus during a search for Wasson’s replacement. Wildwood’s vice president will be interim president of that campus.
