UNFOUNDED CRIMES

2015: One unfounded crime
2014: Four unfounded crimes
2013: One unfounded crime

*Crimes reported in residence halls are included in “on campus” totals.

Footnotes:

  1. The statistical categories for sex offenses have changed.  Sexual offenses are now categorized as rape, fondling, incest and statutory rape.  NOTE:  Sodomy and sexual assault with an object are included in the rape category.
  2. This category was new for reporting in 2013.
  3. Hate crimes are crimes that manifest evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the victim’s actual or perceived Race (RA), Religion (RE), Sexual Orientation (SO), Gender (G), Ethnicity (E), National Origin (NO), Gender Identity (GI) or Disability (D).  Reportable hate offense crime categories include all of the aforementioned crime offenses as well as larceny/theft, simple assault, intimidation and vandalism/malicious destruction of property.
  4. Due to clarification of the reporting guidelines, the information for 2013 and 2014 listed in this category was adjusted to meet the required reporting standards.
  5. Note:  The Maryland General Assembly passed Senate bill 364 which reclassified the use or possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana to a civil offense and is no longer reportable under Clery. The decriminalization law took effect October 1, 2014.
  6. Individuals not arrested but referred for possible campus disciplinary action. 
  7. A comprehensive review for accuracy identified discrepancies in areas which reflected changes in reported statistics for 2013.
