A second audit report concerning former Arkansas State University Chancellor Tim Hudson says Hudson may have violated state law in his efforts to get tuition assistance for an unidentified family member.

The audit released Thursday said the law prohibits a public servant from using his official position to gain special privileges for himself, family members or anyone with whom the official has a "substantial financial relationship."

Hudson resigned Tuesday after the first audit report criticized ASU's study abroad program that was run by his wife.

A phone call to a number listed in his name was not answered.

The audit includes emails in which Hudson tried to get tuition discounts from the New York Institute of Technology. Other emails discuss costs at Loyola University New Orleans and the University of South Alabama.
