Kampfer was released from the
hospital Sunday after being held
for precautionary measures, ac-
cording to Michigan officials.
"I have a strained neck right
now," Kampfer told the Detroit
Free Press in a Sunday phone in-
terview. "I had no relapse of what
happened earlier. Hopefully, I'll be
back this weekend."
Conboy's initial hit was pre-
sumably in retaliation against
Kampfer for knocking Tropp off
his skates with a clean open-ice hit
moments earlier. Tropp received
a five-minute major for slashing,
two 10-minute misconducts and
a double game-disqualification,
which means a minimum three-
game suspension. But Conboy was
just penalized with a double minor
"I don't want to comment on it
because I didn't see it," Michigan
coach Red Berenson said after Sat-
urday's game. "Their coach said
he would deal with their player."
After the game, Michigan State
coach Rick Comley quickly con-
demned his players' actions.
"They fought hard, and what
happened at the end is not good
for hockey," Comley told the State
News. "I'll deal with our kid."

Ex-'U' student caughtin sex sting
using computer to
commit a crime
By STEPHANIE STEINBERG
A former University student was
arraigned Thursday for engaging in
prostitution and using a computer
to commita crime.
Diane Brown, spokeswoman
for the University's Department
of Public Safety, said the Ann Ar-
bor Police Department received an
anonymous tip in November about
someone who was conducting
prostitution. AAPD investigators
staged a sting at an Ann Arbor hotel
in which an investigator posed as a
The 21-year-old Ann Arbor na-
tive was arrested on site, and pros-
ecutors subsequently authorized
two misdemeanor charges for pros-
titution/soliciting and using a com-
puter to commit a crime.
Brown said the woman had ad-
vertised her . services on several
online sites, but her prostitution
activity is a more serious crime.
"There are a lot of things that
are out on the Internet that are il-
legal activities that are rarely dealt
with," Brown said. "Her illegal ac-
tivity was the incident at the hotel.
If a prosecutor reviews the case and
sees that the computer was also a
part of contributing to the crime,
then they will add on that second
charge of using a computer to com-
mit a crime. "
Defense attorney Nicholas Rou-
mel said the incident is not what
people might envision as stereo-
"I think it's a somewhat sym-
pathetic situation," he said. "I'm
hoping there will be a reasonable
According to Brown, the woman
wasn't registered for classes this se-
mester or last semester but was en-
rolled at the University last winter.
University spokeswoman Kelly
Cunningham said she couldn't
comment about why the woman
dropped out of the University due
to privacy reasons.
This is the second case in the last
month where a student associated
with the University has advertised
Brown said this incident was
unrelated to last month's sex case
where a University professor solic-
ited sexual acts from a law student
who advertised on Craigslist to
help pay tuition costs.
Yaron Eliav, associate professor
in the Department of Near East-
ern Studies, and the Law School
student both pleaded no contest
to a misdemeanor charge of using
a computer to commit a crime in

thetic and understanding with others.
Others will feel this and be friendly to
you in kind.
