After Thursday’s Sophomore Class Council election proceeded to a runoff, the results were announced Tuesday night. Tim Scanlan, current freshman class president, will begin his term as sophomore class president April 1. His council will include Nathan Foje, Andrea Palm and Emily Voorde, who will serve as vice president, secretary and treasurer, respectively. The Judicial Council reported Scanlan’s ticket received 541of 1066 votes (50.75 percent), not including 121 abstentions. The opposing ticket received 525 votes (49.25 percent). Scanlan and his ticket defeated Kevin McMannis, Cristin Pacifico, Ryan Newell and Kai Gayoso to win the election. Scanlan said his ticket looks forward to working to achieve the goals and ideals it ran on. “We want to unite the class, get people to connect across the quad, across the hall and between the different dorms,” he said. “We want to do that through several different events, from a class cup to a class stimulus package.” Scanlan said through the stimulus package, any sophomore can submit an idea for an event and Sophomore Class Council will fund, advertise and run it. “We want to do a class trip to Cedar Point as well as an off-campus winter ball,” Scanlan said. “And we’re really excited about some of the class apparel ideas we have. I think the class cup will be what we’ll work on first.” The class cup will be a year-long competition in which residence halls earn points through athletic events and activities, Scanlan said. At the end of the year, Sophomore Class Council will crown a champion. McMannis said he hopes to be involved in Student Government next year and is considering running for membership on Sophomore Class Council or applying to be the director of a Student Senate committee.

Two months after the Appeal Court ordered a fresh trial for murder accused Terry Kissoon, State Prosecutors Lisa Cave and Orinthia Schmidt closed their case at the High Court on Monday.Murder accused Terry KissoonKissoon, who was on trial for just over one week, led his defence, which leaves the Judge, Sandil Kissoon to sum up the evidence before handing the matter to the jury to determine whether the defendant was innocent or guilty.Kissoon stands accused of murdering Troy Smith between July 30 and July 31, 2010, at Smith’s Thomas Street, Kitty, Georgetown residence. According to Police reports, the two men ended up in a heated confrontation after Kissoon had accused Smith of stealing his motorcycle.It was highlighted that Kissoon had given Smith 24 hours to return the vehicle, but then he allegedly took out a handgun and shot Smith in the abdomen before reportedly making his escape. Kissoon was found guilty and issued the death penalty in 2013; that decision was overturned earlier this year. The accused is being represented by Senior Counsel Bernard De Santos.
