Former MTSU Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity president Clinton Knox III was dismissed of all rape charges after pleading guilty to charges of robbery and criminal impersonation in court Thursday.

According to the Office of the Davidson County Criminal Court Clerk, Knox was placed on a six-year probation due to the guilty charges decided in court.

Knox was originally arrested in Nov. of 2015 with charges of rape, aggravated rape, aggravated robbery and the impersonation of a police officer, according to reports by the Tennessean. Knox was accused of raping and robbing a woman while impersonating a police officer in April of 2015.

Before being suspended from MTSU due to his arrest, Knox was a member of MTSU SGA and a grand board director of Kappa Alpha Psi.

With the drop of the rape and aggravated rape charges, Knox will avoid a 15-year prison sentence, but he has been ordered to perform 25o hours of community service and pay a $350 restitution in addition to the probation.
