ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A former Lindenwood University student must serve 90 days in jail, pay the school $5,000 and publicly apologize for publishing confidential student information online.
The St. Charles County prosecutor's office said Addison Richard Todd was sentenced Monday. He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of tampering with computer data and one count of tampering with a computer user. Both are misdemeanors.
In March, an anonymous source began using Twitter and a Web-based file-sharing site to release a list of more than 180 students who had been suspended the previous semester. Student phone numbers, Social Security numbers, email addresses and grade-point averages were also posted.
Todd must also pay about $1,600 in restitution to St. Charles County's cybercrime investigative unit, and is banned from any Lindenwood campuses.
A former wrestler at Lindenwood University if accused of exposing a former student to HIV.
Prosecutors say 22-year-old Michael Johnson faces a charge of "recklessly risking infection of another when infected with HIV." The victim said he met Johnson through social media. Health officials say that although chances of contracting HIV through exchange of bodily fluids while wrestling are extremely rare, anybody who had contact with Johnson should consider consulting a physician.
Investigators are asking anybody that may have been in an intimate relationship with Johnson to contact the St. Charles County Police.
Police are hoping someone will come forward with a tip that leads them to a sexual predator.
Students at Lindenwood University were alerted Sunday of a report of sexual assault overnight.
A Lindenwood University student was reportedly attacked early Sunday in the 1000 block of Powell. St. Charles Police are investigating.

A survey is planned next month at the site where the Battle of Moore's Mill occurred in July 1862 in Callaway County, near what is now known as Calwood.
The Fulton Sun reports that the excavation is being funded by a grant from the American Battlefield Protection Program of the National Park Service.
The survey will be supervised by employees of Lindenwood University in St. Charles and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Faculty and students from Westminster College in Fulton also plan to participate.
