Eastern Michigan University has agreed to pay $350,000 in fines over the school’s cover-up of the rape and killing of a student in her dorm room.

The Ann Arbor News reported that the agreement announced Friday by the Ypsilanti school sets the fines lower than the $357,500 proposed in December by the U.S. Department of Education.

The fines are for violating a federal act requiring schools to accurately disclose campus security information.

Twenty-one-year-old Orange Taylor III of Southfield was sentenced to life in prison for the December 2006 killing of fellow student Laura Dickinson, a 22-year-old from Hastings.

The case led to the firing of university President John Fallon and other school officials.
