BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana University President Michael McRobbie is recommending tuition and fee increases of 1.75% for Indiana residents in each of the next two years at the school's Bloomington campus.
The university said the proposed tuition increase is the lowest since the late 1970s. It would raise tuition from $10,033 in 1012-13 to $10,209 next academic year to $10,388 the following year. Tuition and fees would increase 2.75% each year for non-Indiana residents.
IUPUI would see the same increases as Bloomington. Tuition and fee increases at IU's other regional campuses also would average 1.75%, with individual campus increases ranging from 1.3% to 2.2%.
The IU board of trustees will hold a public meeting on the recommendations at the IUPUI Campus Center in Indianapolis on June 5th.
Settlement calls for refunds to Indiana consumers
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says state residents who bought E-books published by Penguin Group would receive $1.15 million in refunds as part of a multistate investigation into price-fixing and collusion.
Zoeller said Friday that Indiana, along with the other states, reached an agreement with Penguin to settle allegations that it colluded with other major publishers to manipulate prices in the E-book market. He said the agreement with Penguin still must be approved by a U.S. District judge in New York.
Indiana has previously settled with four other publishers. Zoeller said the five settlements will result in Indiana consumers receiving $2.7 million in refunds.
He said Indiana's antitrust action against Apple Inc. is scheduled to go to trial in June.
SQUAD CAR-PEDESTRIAN KILLED
Indianapolis man dies when hit by squad car
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Police say neither speed nor alcohol appear to have been a factor when a squad car struck and killed a pedestrian who had walked into traffic on an Indianapolis street.
The crash happened about 9:35 p.m. Thursday at an intersection on the city's northeast side. City police Officer Michael Hewitt says the squad car driven by Officer Jason Rauch wasn't on an emergency run. Hewitt said Officer Rauch apparently had a green light at the intersection when 49-year-old Richard Moore of Indianapolis stepped from the curb and the patrolman wasn't able to avoid hitting him.
Police say toxicology tests on the police officer are not yet available. Police say Rauch has been with the department since 2008 and has not faced any disciplinary action.
E. Ind. man gets 37 years in prison in son's death
RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) - An eastern Indiana man has been sentenced to 37 years in prison in the starvation death of his 3-month-old son.
A Wayne County jury found 25-year-old Joseph Pierson guilty but mentally ill of reckless homicide and neglect in February in the death a year earlier of Khaiden Hockett.
Wayne County Superior Judge Gregory Horn handed down the sentence Friday after prosecutors asked for a 45-year sentence and defense attorney Michael Dean asked for a lesser sentence because of his client's diminished capacity.
The boy's mother, 22-year-old Amy Hockett, was sentenced in March to 60 years after being convicted of murder.
Dean says Pierson will appeal his sentence.
The boy was found unresponsive inside the couple's Richmond home. The cause of death was dehydration due to starvation.
