Former West Liberty President Settles Ethics Complaint

Robin C. Capehart

Former West Liberty University President Robin Capehart has agreed to pay $10,000 to settle a state ethics complaint regarding his film company.

The West Virginia Ethics Commission released the agreement with Capehart on Thursday.

Capehart resigned in March following the ethics complaint and a vote of no confidence by the university's faculty senate.

In the agreement, Capehart admitted soliciting private business from a part-time university employee. The ethics commission says Kristin Seibert worked as a university consultant at the same time she was managing Capehart's company Flyover Films.

Under the agreement, Capehart will pay a $5,000 fine plus $5,000 in costs.

Flyover Films produced the 2011 movie "Doughboy."
