UGA: suspended professor retires, spray-painted swastika probe continues

His attorney says a University of Georgia professor suspended from campus has retired. William Kazez, a University faculty member for almost three decades, is facing sexual misconduct complaints from seven women who accused of him of inappropriate touching and groping, allegations dating back at least five years.

The University of Georgia says in a statement that it received “corroborated information” that a visitor to campus and not anyone affiliated with the school was behind swastikas found spray painted on dormitory doors at UGA’s Russell and Creswell Halls. The University says more information will be available after the completion of an ongoing investigation.

The final exams that began last Friday continue today at UGA: University of Georgia students are wrapping up a fall semester that will culminate with this Friday’s graduation ceremonies.
