Silly question here – but when Harvard kicked Chanequa Campbell out last year under suspicion of wrongdoing… She was telling the truth that she wasn’t involved? If that is the case…
Isn’t she due some recompense?
Starting with getting her degree and being allowed to march at the next graduation…
BOSTON — A former Harvard University student was indicted Tuesday on accessory and firearms charges in a 2009 shooting death inside a dormitory.
Brittany Smith, 22, of New York City, was the girlfriend of Jabrai Jordan Copney, one of three men charged in connection with the killing of 21-year-old Justin Cosby. Cosby lived a few blocks from the Ivy League campus but was not a Harvard student.
Prosecutors allege the three men — all from New York City and none of them Harvard students — shot Cosby in a Harvard dorm during a robbery attempt during a deal to buy marijuana from him.
Smith is accused of giving the men her Harvard electronic key card to enter the building where the shooting occurred, hiding the gun under a friend’s dorm bed and lying to police. She was indicted on charges of accessory after the fact of murder, illegal possession of a firearm and willfully misleading a grand jury and police.
Smith’s lawyer did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Copney and Blayn Jiggetts are charged with first-degree murder and other counts in Cosby’s death. Jason Aquino is charged with being an accessory after the fact of armed robbery and carrying a firearm without a license. All three have pleaded not guilty.
