ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A former Lindenwood University student must serve 90 days in jail, pay the school $5,000 and publicly apologize for publishing confidential student information online.

The St. Charles County prosecutor’s office said Addison Richard Todd was sentenced Monday.

Todd previously pleaded guilty to two counts of tampering with computer data and one count of tampering with a computer user. Both are misdemeanors.

In March, an anonymous source began using Twitter and a Web-based file-sharing site to release a list of more than 180 students who had been suspended the previous semester.

Student phone numbers, Social Security numbers, email addresses and grade-point averages were also posted.

Todd must also pay about $1,600 in restitution to St. Charles County’s cybercrime investigative unit, and is banned from any Lindenwood campuses.
