Tufts thief ordered to pay paper

MASSACHUSETTSThe Primary Source at Tufts University in Medford filed a complaint against Carl Jackson, former president of the Pan-African Alliance for stealing at least 1,000 copies of the November 2001 issue.

After mediation with the dean of students and dean of judicial affairs in November 2002, Jackson was not suspended but ordered to pay the conservative magazine $522 for damages.

‘The payment we consider an admission of involvement,’ said Megan Liotta, editor in chief of the Source.

She said Jackson was involved with other thefts of the magazine that resulted in the loss of 4,300 copies between October 2001 and January 2002.
