Probation for Mizzou cotton-ball incident

Two Mizzou students have pleaded guilty to leaving cotton balls outside a black culture center, and they've been sentenced to two years of probation and 80 hours of community service. Plus, their licenses were suspended. The incident infuriated a lot of people in Columbia, who said it was a race-based crime. The students denied that. Ultimately, prosecutors charged them with littering, which is a misdemeanor and, thus, can't be considered a bias crime.
