UCF Approves Amnesty Plan for Drunk Underage Students
The University of Central Florida on Wednesday approved a plan for underage students to avoid punitive sanctions should they get so intoxicated that they need to call 911 for help. The amnesty plan has been in the works for a while, even getting turned down by UCF administration in the past.
While the “Alcohol Emergency Plan” will provide amnesty from punitive sanctions from the university, it will not provide amnesty from criminal charges should police choose to file them.
The university did turn down the idea in the past, however, it was the death of freshman Ann Hefferin which helped the plan get approved. Hefferin died last August after attending a fraternity party with alcohol. The idea behind the plan is to encourage students to get help when they become too intoxicated, which supporters of the plan believe it will help save lives.
The article referenced did not mention when the plan will take effect, although one can assume the plan will be in place by this fall.
