Nyang'oro plans to plead not guilty

Julius Nyang’oro intends to plead not guilty to obtaining property under false pretenses — a charge the former chairman of the recently renamed Department of African and Afro-American Studies was indicted for Monday. Nyang’oro made his first appearance in court Tuesday after being indicted by a grand jury for obtaining $12,000 under false pretenses, a class H felony.
