COLUMBIA — There was no crime committed by MU students who posted racist fliers in a residence hall last week, MU police determined.
The students' identities have been confirmed, and consequences will be determined in a hearing of the Judicial Peer Advisory Council.
Since the students were not arrested and the case will not be heard in a public court, court records that would normally be considered public documents are unavailable.
University records containing the students' identities, the messages contained in the fliers, the specific residence hall and the advisory council's decision are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, more commonly known as FERPA, and cannot be released, said Christian Basi, an MU spokesman.
Brian Weimer, MU police captain, said he was unable to comment since there was no arrest.
The Office of Student Conduct has made no comment regarding the incident.
