Felony charges will be issued against a University of Wisconsin-River Falls professor for sexually assaulting a child.
The arrest occurred at a local movie theatre where the professor was speaking extremely close to a 13-year-old girl. Employees of the movie theatre were uncomfortable with their interaction and before alerting authorities confirmed that the young girl was not his daughter. Probable cause was discovered when the young girl's 14-year-old boyfriend told an employee that they needed to call the police.
The professor has yet to stand to trial but is feeling the effects of the charges in his everyday life. According to his lawyer, his reputation is already tainted by the news of child sexual assault.
The arraignment is set for November 12,2011.
