A Vermont student convicted in a cheating scandal in Hanover, New Hampshire has filed an appeal with the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
Jason Hadley of Norwich, Vermont, was convicted last month of being an accomplice to the theft of final exams that were stolen from the school last June. Another student, Paul Formella, was found guilty of being an accomplice in November and appealed his conviction the next month.
Hadley’s appeal asks the court to decide whether the conviction can stand if prosecutors presented no evidence that a crime had taken place.
Ten students from Hanover and Norwich have been charged with being involved in the scandal.
