A business professor at Kennesaw State University (KSU) was put on administrative leave this week after being accused of sexually molesting a 14-year-old girl.
The incident occured on Nov. 22, 2012 when Kenneth Charles Robinson, 52, was visiting the teen's mother in her home off of Lookout Place in Atlanta. Robinson and the girl's mother were drinking when an an argument took place between mother and daughter. The teen then retreated to her bedroom. Later, Robinson reportedly went into her room, lied down next to her, and innappropriately touched her.
At close to 1 a.m. the next morning, the teen reported the abuse to her family. Along with the victim's sister, the mother confronted Robinson. He left shortly after.
However, according to Robinson's attorney, George M. Weaver, the story is false. Weaver also points out that it was months after the alleged incident occurred before Robinson was arrested, due to lack of evidence.
Robinson turned himself in to the Fulton County police on March 1, yet, it wasn't until this week that KSU school officials learned of the incident. After hearing the allegations, Robinson was placed on suspension until further notice.
Robinson is charged with one count of sexual battery of a child and one count of child molestion. He remains free on a $100,000 bond.
