WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Purdue said they will carefully consider revisiting their policies on whether extra precautions will be taken for professors applying for grants.

This response comes after Purdue professor Dr. Qingyou Han was indicted. He allegedly spent thousands in grant money on himself and his family.

Purdue Spokesperson, Tim Doty, said once all information is available to the university they will carefully consider making decisions in a manner consistent with those policies.

Han and his wife's company received more than a million dollars in grants from the National Science Foundation.

They both pleaded guilty Friday. A sentencing has been scheduled for January 21.
