ROCKVILLE, Conn. (AP) - A University of Connecticut student is facing a judge for the first time since being charged with making a racial slur outside a campus apartment complex.

Jarred Karal, of Plainville, is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Rockville Superior Court.


He and another student, Ryan Mucaj (moo-CHYE'), of Granby, are charged with ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race.

Police say the two 21-year-old men said the racial slur several times in an apartment complex parking lot on Oct. 11.

The slur was recorded on video by a black student and led to protests at the school. Karal and Mucaj are white.

Karal's lawyer, T.R. Paulding Jr., declined to comment.

Mucaj is due in court Dec. 19. His lawyer declined to comment.
