Two more Skidmore students convicted in December assault

Elijah Johnston and Korvin Vicente both pleaded to disorderly conduct on Feb. 22, and both were assessed a fine of $250 which the students have until March 22 to pay, according to information from Murphy's office.

Justin Tavarez, the student who injured the victim by striking him with a plate, previously pleaded guilty to assault in the third degree, a class a misdemeanor, and a fourth student's case is still pending, according to information from Murphy's office.

Murphy said no further comment about the case would be available.""
