   DeSmet football coach Pat Mahoney spoke Fox 2 News about Bowman's death. "He was absolutely one of the toughest, most aggressive kids that I've coached in my entire career, just a great teammate," Mahoney said.  "Several of the player on our team, they've been together since sixth grade, fifth grade playing, so they've known each other virtually their entire lives."
   School officials opened the campus chapel Sunday night, making counselors available to students and families.  Counselors will also be available on Monday.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A former Lindenwood University student must serve 90 days in jail, pay the school $5,000 and publicly apologize for publishing confidential student information online.

 

   The St. Charles County prosecutor's office said Addison Richard Todd was sentenced Monday. He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of tampering with computer data and one count of tampering with a computer user. Both are misdemeanors.

 

   In March, an anonymous source began using Twitter and a Web-based file-sharing site to release a list of more than 180 students who had been suspended the previous semester. Student phone numbers, Social Security numbers, email addresses and grade-point averages were also posted.

   Todd must also pay about $1,600 in restitution to St. Charles County's cybercrime investigative unit, and is banned from any Lindenwood campuses.

A former wrestler at Lindenwood University if accused of exposing a former student to HIV.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Michael Johnson faces a charge of "recklessly risking infection of another when infected with HIV." The victim said he met Johnson through social media. Health officials say that although chances of contracting HIV through exchange of bodily fluids while wrestling are extremely rare, anybody who had contact with Johnson should consider consulting a physician.

Investigators are asking anybody that may have been in an intimate relationship with Johnson to contact the St. Charles County Police.
