Campus Judicial Report

Roommate issues

An upperclassman was referred to Student Judicial Affairs (SJA) by the UC Davis Police for assault and battery. Specifically, the police were called to the student’s residency where he was found to have been hitting his roommate. In his meeting with a Judicial Officer, the student admitted that he had been intoxicated during the encounter, and said that the two had gotten into altercations in the past. The student agreed to accept Deferred Separation status, and to attend both the Batterers Program and the Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) program.

Drunk driving is still not a good idea

A student was referred to SJA by the police for driving while under the influence. The officer observed the student skid, swerve in and out of traffic, and come close to hitting pedestrians. When the driver was pulled over, the officer smelled alcohol, and wrote the student up. The Judicial Officer that handled the case spoke with the student and found that she was on her way to pick up some friends. She said that she had not seen any people in the road. The student agreed to Disciplinary Probation and to meet with ATOD, but no charges were filed.

 Health issues

A student was picked up by the UC Davis police and referred to SJA for drug possession after the student’s manager smelled marijuana on her at work. Upon being searched, the student was found to be in possession of a baggie of marijuana, and was written up. When the student met with a judicial officer, she admitted that she had been carrying marijuana but claimed that it was for medical purposes. However, although it may be legal in the state to possess marijuana for medicinal purposes, it is a violation of University of California policy to possess or partake in marijuana on any of the campuses, even with a prescription.  With that in mind, the student agreed to accept Disciplinary Probation and to meet with the people at ATOD.
