Foot in the dorm student journalists charged

Can't believe this story from from Editor & Publisher in the US. Surely these student journalists are just showing a bit of old fashioned, foot in the door journalism and should be commended?
"Two university students are facing trespassing and disorderly conduct charges after they entered a campus dormitory to interview students for a news article about a "Peeping Tom" incident.
"The Society of Professional Journalists has called on James Madison University to drop the charges brought by the university's Office of Judicial Affairs against 21-year-old Tim Chapman, editor-in-chief of campus newspaper The Breeze, and 19-year-old Breeze reporter Katie Hibson."
