Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-Va.) is scheduled to meet privately with the University of Virginia's president next week following the killing of a UVA student-athlete. President John Casteen wants to discuss the idea of requiring police to report the off-campus arrests of students to their schools.
The former UVA student accused in the killing of Yeardley Love was arrested in Lexington in 2008 after resisting arrest on public intoxication. University officials say they were never notified of the arrest.
Meanwhile, Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia's Attorney General, says he expects his office to take a lead role in reviewing current policy and crafting new legislation.
"I do think you can expect to see some legal changes, changes to our statutes, as a result of this tragedy," he says.
Cuccinelli was speaking on WAMU's "The Politics Hour". He says he thinks it is appropriate to notify schools about student arrests.
