Ex-US attorney to investigate Boston school
BOSTON (AP) -- A former federal prosecutor has been appointed to investigate accusations of unreported crimes and financial mismanagement at Roxbury Community College.
Wayne Budd was named Thursday by the Boston school, which is already under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education for alleged lapses in compliance with a national campus crime reporting law, and the Massachusetts auditor's office, which is looking into crime reporting as well as financial concerns.
Budd, now in private practice, is expected to conduct a more sweeping investigation. Although he will confer with top college officials, he is expected to remain independent.
Budd is also expected to make recommendations on how the school can tighten security policies and financial oversight.
Interim president Linda Turner told The Boston Globe there are "deficiencies" at the school.
