Three U of Albany Students Who Faked Hate Crime Get Probation: Three African-American University at Albany students who allegedly falsely reported a hate crime have now been given probation and community service.
Former students Asha Burwell and Ariel Agudio are the final two to face sentencing for the alleged false hate crime report. Both received three years of probation and 200 hours each of community service for the January 30, 2016, incident. The judge waived jail time saying that the pair had faced “significant consequences” already, according to Fox News.
