Former Purdue administrator awaits sentencing

A Tippecanoe County judge is considering the punishment for a former Purdue associate dean.

Judge Les Meade accepted Pablo Malavenda’s plea of guilty for one count of theft. He was arrested last October for shoplifting and accused of stealing about $160 worth of household items.

Theft is a Class D Felony with a maximum sentence of three years in prison.

Purdue fired Pablo Malavenda from his job in the dean of students office shortly after his arrest last year.

A sentencing hearing is set for May 23, 2012.
