OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A lawyer for a now-disbanded fraternity at the University of Oklahoma whose members were caught engaging in a racist chant says an agreement has been reached that calls for no further student expulsions.
Stephen Jones told The Associated Press on Wednesday the deal was reached with university officials but declined to comment further about the details. He confirmed no additional members of the university's chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity will be expelled under the agreement.
Separate messages left Wednesday with a university spokeswoman and OU President David Boren's press secretary were not immediately returned.
Boren severed ties with the fraternity and ordered two members expelled after video surfaced of students engaging in a chant that referenced lynching and declared black students would never be admitted as members.
