Senior Class President charged with misdemeanor theft

Newly elected Senior Class President Oliver Delgado was arrested and charged for a misdemeanor theft from Memorial Union in late April, according to The Capital Times. 


At an initial court appearance April 21, Delgado plead not guilty to stealing Van Galder bus tickets from the union's information desk, though a criminal complaint cites his confession.  


Delgado was elected president of the class of 2009 during the Associated Students of Madison spring elections April 1 to April 3. 


Members of ASM Student Council would not comment on whether Delgado would keep his position at its meeting Monday. 

Student Council also postponed the election for chair of ASM because potential candidate Jeff Wright said he did not want the position. Wright said he instead wanted to work on reform rather than work with the details of holding the chair position.  


Brittany Wiegand, current chair of the ASM Legislative Affairs Committee, also said she did not want the position. Members discussed the possibility of electing a president instead of a chair for next year's ASM spring elections. 


Tim Fung won the position of ASM Finance Committee chair by one vote over freshman representative Julie Chou.

The council also passed the Constitutional Committee's Resolution, which forms an ad hoc committee to write a new constitution and bylaws for students at UW-Madison.
