  • Worth noting, I think: A commenter to the linked article stated that this person hasn’t worked at the Omaha Conservatory of Music for thirteen years, and hasn’t been with the Omaha Symphony for at least that long.

  • He effectively got 2 1/2 years in prison for the rape of a 13 year old girl. He was convicted of 3rd degree sexual assault on a 16 year old violin student a few years prior in Nebraska. Before that, he was fired from the University of Georgia for sexual misconduct. He could be out in 2019 if he gets probation. How is that fair?

    • It’s not. He was assaulting fellow students at the University of Michigan before that including friends of mine. I hope he serves the full term.
