LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY: Sophia Rosing, a student at the University of Kentucky and a native of Fort Mitchell, has been permanently banned from the university and will not be permitted to reapply for admission, according to a statement from university president Eli Capilouto.

On November 6, Sunday night, Kylah Spring, who was working her night shift at the front desk of the resident hall, claimed to have witnessed Rosing attempting to enter the building while intoxicated at around 1 am. Spring claimed that as part of her duties, she is required to contact a resident advisor (RA) so that they can check on the welfare of the intoxicated individual and compile a report to record the incident. Rosing allegedly grew aggressive while waiting for a response from an RA. Rosing began yelling racial slurs, saying, "You're a (N-word) and a b****," as Spring tried to prevent Rosing from using the elevators in the dorm. The university claimed that Rosing will not be permitted to re-enroll as a student, and they have chosen to permanently ban her from the campus.

Capilouto wrote in the letter, "Although she is no longer a student, we must continue our investigations. That includes our cooperation with an investigation into criminal charges filed; our Code of Student Conduct disciplinary proceedings and racial harassment misconduct being reviewed by our Office of Institutional Equity and Equal Opportunity."

A formal trial was bypassed by Rosing when she appeared in court on November 7, Monday afternoon and entered a not guilty plea through her attorney. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 15 at 8.30 am and her bail was set at $10,000 cash.
