Ex-IU Employee Pleading Guilty To Campus Vandalism

Last updated on Thursday, March 22, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) - A former Indiana University employee has agreed to plead guilty to an act of vandalism that was among what authorities called a series of anti-Jewish vandalism around the Bloomington campus.

Mark Zacharias, 55, of Ellettsville is scheduled to be sentenced Monday by a Monroe County judge on a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge of breaking a glass staff directory at IU's Goodbody Hall, which houses the school's Jewish studies program.

He wasn't charged in instances where rocks were thrown through windows of Jewish centers.

The plea agreement calls for a 30-day suspended jail sentence, probation, 40 hours of community service and counseling. The university fired Zacharias from his job as an honors college scholarship coordinator.
