Community Responsibilities: Civil & Criminal Laws and Applicability to Campus
Students are expected to abide by the laws and ordinances that govern the United States, the State of Ohio and the City of Canton. A student who is charged under, or convicted of, violations of civil or criminal law may be subject to Malone's disciplinary procedures and sanctions for the same offense when the misconduct occurs on campus, or in connection with Malone activities or programs, or anytime a student's behavior has an adverse effect upon the rights or interests of the Malone community.
The prosecution of a student by local, state, or federal authority does not create double jeopardy, or in any way preclude subsequent judicial action against a student for the same conduct by Malone. Similarly, any action by Malone does not preclude subsequent action by any local, state, or federal authority.
