NEWS / Rhode Island student quits dorm after criminal record surfaces

A University of Rhode Island (URI) student has left his dorm after a brief residency and has also withdrawn his application for a tuition waiver after it was discovered that he participated in an armed robbery last year.

The student, Malcolm Jones, was able to enroll in the university and obtain a dorm room without any suspicions from the admissions committee. He later admitted to a 2012 robbery and left the dorm, The Providence Journal reports.

The university is now investigating how he was able to get enrolled and obtain a room in the first place. It is standard procedure for the admissions committee to ask aspiring students about their criminal past.

Allegations of nepotism were raised by some when it was discovered that his father, Carnell Jones Jr., was the director of the universityís enrollment services. However, a spokesperson for the university said there was no evidence of Jonesí involvement in his sonís enrollment and stated that the university was simply unaware of Malcolm Jonesí criminal history.

Carnell Jones Jr. reported that his sonís waiver application had been withdrawn and said he regrets that the incident had become a distraction.
