First, a bit of context. I was in college in the early 80's. At that time programming assignments were handed in to the instructor on paper listings. One of my professors returned graded listings for the final project via a cabinet outside his office. The listing for my final project in his real-time programming course was missing. I talked to the professor, and he told me I got an A.

The following quarter, one of his students did poorly on exams, but was doing well on the projects. The professor called me in, and had me look at a final project. Other than minor cosmetic tweaks to the comments, it was my code. I had a draft listing from the previous quarter as proof. The son of a bitch had stolen it.

There is no excuse for academic fraud. I firmly believe the punishment should be immediate expulsion and revocation of any credits earned.
