More on the Southern Utah University "plagiarism" problem

An account in the SUUNews titled
SUU investigating plagiarism complaints
illustrates how confusing the situation with Frost and Hansen has become.

Some text showing the problem:

SUU Police Chief Rick Brown hand-delivered the notice of trespass and a “theft of lost property” citation to Frost.

Brown was operating on information he had received from Hansen, who was acting as a private citizen, O’Driscoll said.

“We (the university) are not pressing any charges against Frost,” O’Driscoll said. “(People are) under the wrong impression.”

O’Driscoll said he had, “regretfully,” not been informed of Hansen’s decision to press charges until after the notice had been delivered to Frost.
