The university also said that other students may also face sanctions as law enforcement completes their investigations and reports. These cases are independent of any criminal penalties or fines the students may face.

The expelled students were among 14 charged earlier this week and were immediately prohibited from accessing university property and activities, pending further review under the Student Council Code.

“We have made it clear that this university will hold students accountable for their unlawful behavior,” WVU President Gordon Gee said. “We will not allow individuals to remain enrolled who commit these crimes and damage the reputation and achievements of our faculty, staff, students, alumni and community.”
