ALLENDALE, Mich. (WOOD) - A Grand Valley State University student has confessed to sending fraudulent emails, according to the GVSU Police Department.
The emails were represented as being from faculty and staff but were not and falsely stated classes were canceled. GVSU PD said last week the emails were being treated as a "criminal matter" rather than a prank.
Police found evidence that led them to the student, according to a Monday release. They interviewed the student, who then confessed.
The Ottawa County Prosecutor's Office will review the case, according to GVSU PD, and the Dean of Students will receive a Judicial Referral for a violation of the Student Code.
