ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) -- A St. Charles man is facing misdemeanor charges of computer-related tampering for allegedly taking confidential information about Lindenwood University students and publishing it online. Charges were filed Monday against Addison Richard Todd, a former Lindenwood student.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that in March, an anonymous source began using Twitter and a Web-based file-sharing site to release confidential information, including a list of more than 180 students who had been suspended the previous semester. Student phone numbers, Social Security numbers, email addresses and grade-point averages were also posted.

Investigators suspected Todd early on but spent months working through courts to gain records from Twitter and other sources to establish an electronic trail. School officials say Todd is no longer a student there.
