Prosecutors won’t file charges against Muslim student suspected of hate-crime hoax

The Washtenaw County Prosecutors Office will not file charges against a University of Michigan student suspected by the Ann Arbor Police Department of a hate-crime hoax, an official with the office confirmed Monday to The College Fix.

In November, a female University of Michigan student told police days after the election that a white man demanded she remove her hijab or he would set her on fire with a lighter, an allegation later deemed false by police.
