And another in Madison:
A third allegation of misconduct involving an adult male has been cast against a former top UW athletic official, adding to a growing investigation of John Chadima.
Interim UW-Madison Chancellor David Ward said in a statement Thursday the UW-Madison Police Department is investigating the allegation and has deemed it “credible,” but did not release any more details.
He said police are investigating “all allegations of sexual impropriety or abuse of power.”
Chadima resigned Jan. 6 after he allegedly sexually assaulted a student employee at a Rose Bowl party in Pasadena – and threatened to fire him. Another former student came forward with a complaint.
And now today. Here’s what his lawyer has to say:
Chadima’s attorney, Charles Giesen, blasted Ward for soliciting complaints against Chadima. He said neither he nor Chadima has been told the nature of the latest charges.
“Without knowing who the accuser is or what allegation is, there’s no way John can make any meaningful response,” Giesen said Thursday. “I think it’s especially inappropriate for the chancellor to be soliciting complaints against John Chadima and to vouch for the credibility of some anonymous accuser during an ongoing investigation.”
Don’t most allegations of sexual abuse come from “anonymous accusers”?
