Cuccinelli To Make Announcement about Virginia Tech Fines

Play associated audio

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is expected to make an announcement today about fines imposed on the university.

Federal officials issued a maximum fine of $55,000 in February after a December 2010 report found that the university violated a federal law by waiting too long to inform students about the first shootings on campus on April 16, 2007.

By the time the rampage ended when the student gunman turned his weapon on himself, more than 30 students and teachers were dead and many others were wounded.

Virginia Tech President Charles Steger has said the University will likely appeal the fine in order to get a better explanation from the Department of Education about the basis for its decision.

School officials have been meeting with Cuccinelli 's office to discuss the case.
