College Suspends Student Over Facebook Entry

Published February 18, 2009

A Grand Rapids, Mich. college student is seeking re-admission to school after he was suspended over a Facebook entry.

Tony Harris denies having made sexually explicit statements about his ex-girlfriend on the popular social networking Web site.

Harris says he believes his ex stole his password and used the plot to deliberately cause him problems at Calvin College. Harris is accused of sexual harassment, libel and violation of Calvin’s “responsible use of technology” policy.

He says he’ll seek legal subpoenas to get Facebook usage records that may exonerate him. Otherwise, Harris can’t attend the Christian school again for, at least, a year.
