Smartphone, Dumb Thief

Privileged White Male LOSES FOR ONCE

The University employee accused of stealing a student’s phone pleaded guilty to the theft in Wellington District Court on Wednesday. 

Arana Kenny, a 21-year-old University caretaker, is still employed by the University. Salient observed Mr Kenny working on-campus in uniform on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon.

A poster campaign and blog regarding the University’s inaction were started by the victim of the theft, Chris Cherry, as reported by Salient last week. Cherry has withdrawn from his PhD program following the theft, stating he did not accept the University’s actions.

“The only solution the University could come up with was for me not to use the campus, so I feel that I have no other option except to give up my scholarship”, he wrote on his blog.

Cherry also no longer holds his tutoring position.

Kenny intends to apply for a discharge without conviction at a sentencing hearing next month.
