Former S&S Officer Sentenced
Former College Safety & Security officer Shane Harlow of Quechee, who was previously accused of fleeing the scene of a fatal accident involving Dartmouth graduate student Mikhail Lomakin, has been sentenced to prison for sexually molesting two girls. According to the Valley News:
In Windsor Superior Court on Wednesday, 48-year-old Shane Harlow was sentenced to 10 to 30 years in prison, with all but five years suspended as long as he exhibits good behavior. As part of a plea agreement reached in September, Harlow also pleaded no contest to an unrelated misdemeanor count of leaving the scene of an accident after allegedly running over the body of a 24-year-old Dartmouth College graduate student in October 2012…
As a condition of his sentence, Harlow must complete a treatment program for sex offenders and is not allowed to contact his victims or any minors without the approval of his probation officer. He is also forbidden from having romantic relationships with people who have children under the age of 16. A violation of his probation could land him in prison until he is 78 years old, said Windsor County State’s Attorney Michael Kainen.
“He is effectively on house arrest for most of the rest of his life,” Kainen said.
Nearly all of Harlow’s sentence is related to the sex crimes. His sentence for leaving the accident scene was 30 days. In that case, it was unclear whether the car Harlow was driving struck the body of the Dartmouth student, Mikhail Lomakin, before or after Lomakin died. Lomakin was found dead on Interstate 91 under mysterious circumstances.

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…

Fare Thee Well, Tom Crady
And now Dean Tom Crady has precipitously announced his departure from the College after only 20 months on the job. How to read this? By way of background, prior to coming to Dartmouth, Crady had…

In an interview with The Dartmouth, alumni-elected trustee T.J. Rodgers ‘70 explained his reasons for declining to participate in future evaluations of trustees up for “re-election,” namely the “kangaroo court” nature of such discussion in…
