CONWAY, AR - "I mean it's just insane," UCA student Jake Harrell said.
That's what most students are saying today at UCA, and here's why: according to an affidavit, former UCA Chief of Staff Jack Gillean gave student Cameron Stark keys to university buildings do that Stark could steal exams from his professors.
One more time just so we're clear: prosecutors say UCA's Chief of Staff helped a student break into buildings and cheat.
"You have to wonder what else is there to it?” Harrell said. “You know, what else was thart student doing to get that in return?"
Good question. Current UCA administrators refused to comment so we asked Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland, who filed the charges.
In other words, if we ever find out, it'll be in court. That doesn't make UCA students feel any better though. The vast majority of them, like junior Jacob Partlow, hit the books hard.
"If I get a B and they get an A, it's just not fair because I put in a lot of work and they just, you know, got a key and walked into a room and got their A." Partlow said.
Gillean is also charged with one count of fraudulent insurance acts, which is a felony, and one count of issuing a false financial statement, which is a misdemeanor.
