The Adkins for Student Body President campaign was awarded one point by the UNC Board of Elections for a false start violation.
Elizabeth Adkins has not been disqualified, but the max campaign budget has been reduced by 5 percent.
Junior Ian Muriuki filed a complaint against Adkins on Feb. 26. The complaint included one count of financial problems, four false start violations, six technology violations and one location violation.
After a hearing on Friday, the Adkins campaign was found guilty of a false start charge because a member of her campaign shared a Facebook post during the campaign freeze. The campaign pleaded guilty to this charge and were awarded one point by the BOE.
"The court also agreed that due its minimal nature, a Facebook post sharing a video unrelated to the campaign, the harm was minimal and warranted points as such," the decision said.
