US university ‘ignored music professor’s sex abuse’ for a decademain
An independent investigation into sexual misconduct by a music professor at the University of Connecticut claims that the college authorities refused to take action on the accusations for more than 10 years.
Professor Robert Miller, 66, director of the music school, has been accused of misconduct with students; he was suspended from the university in June, but has not been charged with any crime. The dean of the music department, David Woods, is under fire for failing to take action sooner. He has been demoted from the post of dean, but continues to draw a $238,000 salary. Both men were told on Thursday that they face dismissal.
