FRAUD
Continued from Page 1A
(v nation)."'
1 Special Agent Greg Stajkal, who works
in the department's Ann Arbor office, said he is
"aware of the case in the registrar's office,' but
he,would not confirm whether the FBI is inves-
tigating the case.
Lowenstein said the case probably involved
multiple state and federal violations of criminal
and mail fraud.
,."There are specific kinds of violations
depending on how much money is involved,"
Lowenstein said. "They're really stealing
money, but they used fraud to do that.

Texas man executed quickly

"Someone who did that and got caught would
be looking at many years of prison," she said.
Associate Vice President for University
Relations Lisa Baker refused to comment last
night on the investigation or the University's
policies on student records.
Lowenstein said the University is responsible
for protecting student academic records and can
be held liable under FERPA if it acted negli-
gently.
"The main purpose of FERPA is to make the
University protect records," Lowenstein said. "If
that is violated, federal money can be taken
away from the University."
McElvain said the registrar's office inter-
views its employees and checks their references

before hiring anyone.
"All University students have background
checks done on them" McElvain said, adding
that the checks are performed by the
University's personnel office.
"There are very, very few students ever
employed in the registrar's office,"he said. "The
same things would be asked of a student as of
anyone."
Resolution Coordinator Mary Lou Antieau,
who oversees the acministration of the Code,
said the fraudulent behavior "would fall under
the Code."
"We've never had a case like that under the
Statement (of Student Rights and
Responsibilities) or the Code," Antieau said.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A man con-
victed 10 months ago of killing his former boss
was executed by injection yesterday in the
nation's speediest death sentence since Gary
Gilmore in 1977.
Joe Gonzales, 36, waived all appeals as he
waited to die, cutting short a process that in
Texas averages about eight years. He died at at
6:19 p.m., seven minutes after the lethal drugs
were administered.
"There are people all over the world who face
things worse than death on a daily basis, and in
that sense I consider myself lucky," he said in a

final, handwritten statement. "I cannot find th
words to express the sadness I feel for bringing
this hurt and pain on my loved ones.... God bless
you all."
Gonzales, a roofer, was convicted in
November in the 1992 slaying of William
Veader, 50, a building contractor. Gonzales,
claiming Veader owed him $200, shot him in the
head and robbed him.
"I am a man who has no regard for the law. I
am a man who has no regard for humanity,"
Gonzales, who acted as his own lawyer, told th4
jury.
