Report Due On UConn Professor Accused Of Sexual Misconduct
STORRS — The University of Connecticut’s board of trustees is set to receive and discuss an independent counsel’s report on allegations a music professor engaged in sexual misconduct involving children.
Robert Miller, 66, was placed on administrative leave last summer after the allegations came to light. UConn police spoke to a number of people who said Miller was involved in sexual misconduct in the 1990s at a summer camp in Connecticut, according to court documents.
Miller has not been charged with a crime since the statute of limitations has expired in Connecticut, but one person in Virginia, where the statute of limitations has not expired, claims he was assaulted by Miller.
Court documents also say some UConn officials may have known about these allegations years ago. When asked who knew what and what action was taken, UConn said it expected an investigation would answer those questions.
