Police have arrested a professor with Liberty University for sexual battery and kidnapping charges following an incident involving a student back in September, according to online court records.
William Atwell, 58, who has been at Liberty University since 2013, was arrested by campus police on November 20th and was released two days ago on a $3000 bond.
He has officially been charged with felony abduction by force/intimidation and misdemeanor sexual battery. According to a statement made by a Liberty university spokesperson made to WFXR News:
“Liberty University takes nothing more seriously than claims that a faculty member has had inappropriate sexual contact with one of our students, something for which there is zero tolerance. We are treating this matter with the utmost seriousness, care, and concern. With the student’s consent, the university turned the matter over to the appropriate legal authorities and the faculty member in question was arrested. The faculty member has also been suspended by the university pending the outcome of this matter. To protect the integrity of investigation and the privacy of the student, we will limit further comment.”
Atwell is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 25, 2022.
