Grand Jury blasts UT regent but no indictment

🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – A grand jury has declined to indict a University of Texas regent for illegally releasing confidential student information, instead issuing a blistering report decrying his “unaccountable and abusive behavior.”

Prosecutors in Travis County, which includes Austin, asked grand jurors to consider whether Wallace Hall disseminated confidential student information during his relentless pursuit of Austin campus records.

State lawmakers already have censured Hall over his actions during a years-long personal investigation of the campus administration, including President Bill Powers.

A four-page report released Tuesday and signed by members of the 390th grand jury contained no criminal charges against Hall.

But it said Hall “used his positional power to the point of abuse,” while also accusing him of “abusive excess” in seeking so much information that it overwhelmed records administrators.
