ST. LOUIS—Three officials at the Meramec campus of St. Louis Community College are out of jobs after an outside review of an April attack on a female student found widespread problems.

Former student Jevon Mallory faces a felony assault charge after an 18-year-old Chesterfield woman said she was choked in a women’s bathroom at the Kirkwood campus.

A report by the Armstrong Teasdale law firm released Thursday found a “system-wide failure” among administrators, campus police and other officials.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Meramec campus police chief, a district police chief and a vice president of student affairs no longer hold those jobs. A school official declined to say whether they were fired or transferred elsewhere.

Meramec campus President George Wasson resigned soon after the attack.
