UR Football Team Members Charged With Criminal Negligence and Failure to Notify Students of a Violent Crime
Several members of the University of Rhode Island (UR) football team have been charged with criminal neglect and failure to notify students of a violent crime that occurred on campus. The incident involved the robbery of a local drug dealer on campus, which was orchestrated by UR alumnus Nick Kollias. It was the result of a complex deception.
Nick Kollias orchestrated a robbery on campus against local drug dealers
Several years ago, Nicholas “Niko” Kollias was a football player at the University of Rochester. He was a 6-foot-1, 215-pound defensive end. He grew up in a wealthy suburb of Chicago. He’s also a classical pianist.
He recently graduated from UR without returning to campus. He works in finance in Chicago. He recently ran a road race. However, he hasn’t been able to transfer money from his bank account. It’s believed that his bank cards were stolen before he was rescued.
On the weekend of October 13, 2016, Kollias’ teammate was attacked and robbed in his room at UR’s Brooks Crossing campus. The robbery took place while Kollias and his friend were out of state. The robbery was arranged by a drug dealer. Smith was charged with robbery. Several football coaches arranged for Smith to be bailed out.
Kollias’ teammate was not related to the victims of the hammer attack. The football player lived in an apartment on campus. He didn’t know anything about the attack. He requested anonymity.
Kidnapping was the result of a complex deceit
Generally speaking, kidnapping is the act of removing a person from one place to another without their consent. It is a federal crime, and can result in penalties.
Kidnapping can be used for nefarious purposes such as ransom, terrorizing, or interfering with a governmental or political function. It can also be used for economic purposes.
In the past, kidnapping was based on insurgencies and ethnic sentiments. In the modern age, it is more based on economic and political reasons.
Kidnapping can be carried out by a group of people, such as the Boko Haram terrorist group, or by a single individual. In both cases, the kidnappers need to identify a suitable target and plan a time-line. They must also be able to find a place where they can conceal their victims.
Kidnapping is often accompanied by a complex deception. In this case, the perpetrators may try to sway the victim into agreeing to the abduction. In some cases, the perpetrators will make up a story and convince the victim to make a monetary payment. In others, the kidnappers will co-opt bank employees.
UR football team’s failure to adequately deal with ani okeke ewo
During a Thanksgiving break in 2015, the University of Rochester football team’s most prized possession was abducted by an unscrupulous group of drug dealers. While the crime wasn’t particularly lurid, it set off a chain of events that reeked of foul play.
The most memorable event of all was a “robbery” that was orchestrated by Smith, a former UR linebacker. Smith, who grew up in the Bronx, was a known drug dealer among his fellow teammates. The robbery was conducted in the UR’s aptly named Brooks Crossing. It was not a particularly elaborate crime, but one which UR eloquently defended with a comment on its website.
Smith’s alleged crime was accompanied by a slew of other crimes, including several thefts and vandalism. While Smith escaped the first round of charges, he was convicted of the crimes which led to the biggest punishment of all – a 13 and a half year sentence. Smith is still serving his time.
