MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Court records show that the West Virginia University dean responsible for the school’s fraternity and sorority life pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge in Pennsylvania shortly before the school announced his resignation this fall.

Associate dean of students and director of Greek Life Roy Baker, who came to the university a year earlier from Penn State University, pleaded guilty Oct. 24 and later paid a $454 fine before Judge Eugene Riazzi in McKeesport.

School officials acknowledged in early November that Baker resigned but declined to say why.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that the original criminal complaint also accused the 63-year-old Baker of soliciting a male prostitute when he was arrested Sept. 4 but said that charge was withdrawn.

A call to Baker’s lawyer Friday was not immediately returned.
