NCCU grad copied speech from YouTube

DURHAM (TAMARA GIBBS / WTVD) -- A North Carolina Central University law school graduate faces possible disciplinary action after copying a commencement speech almost word for word from a YouTube video.

Preston Mitchum - NCCU's top law student - delivered this year's commencement speech. Many called it awe-inspiring.

"It was funny. I enjoyed it. I was entertained," said student Jeffrey Wilkins.
