A Marshall University student who remained enrolled despite a conviction for a 2016 attack on a female classmate has now been expelled after being accused of two sexual assaults.

Joseph Hardin, jailed last week as the new allegations surfaced, was thrown out of the West Virginia school on Tuesday.

“We have taken, and will continue to take, aggressive steps to make sure the entire Marshall community is safe," President Jerome Gilbert said in a statement on Wednesday. “I have zero tolerance for inappropriate, illegal behavior, and pledge that we will always treat sexual misconduct and violence with the utmost gravity. The safety of our students is our first obligation.”

Officials at the Huntington campus said that Hardin was expelled in accordance with its student conduct disciplinary procedures.
