Athletic director at University of Wisconsin admits to alcohol problem

Posted on Tuesday, February 7th, 2012 at 8:37 pm    

The University of Wisconsin senior associate athletic director has admitted to the public that he has let alcohol control his life for the past several months, and that he is taking full responsibility for his actions during that time.

One of his actions involves sexually assaulting a male student employee from the athletic department while in Pasadena, California. They were both in California to watch the University of Wisconsin football team participate in the Rose Bowl. A hotel party in the athletic director’s room resulted in him ingesting too much alcohol.

The director approached the student employee towards the end of the party and proceeded to place his hand inside the student’s pants. The student quickly reacted by removing the director’s hand and telling his immediate boss. Charges weren’t filed with police until the team arrived back in Madison, Wisconsin.

Sexual assault centers will receive significantly less funding in 2012

Posted on Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 at 7:50 pm    

Sexual assault centers throughout Wisconsin will experience a decrease in government funding for the 2012 fiscal year. A 42.5 percent cut in funding will cause the centers to reevaluate the use of their money and who will be able to receive treatment and aid at the centers.

The Department of Justice claims that this decrease is important in order to maintain the workforce responsible for investigating the reports of sexual abuse.

Revenue collected from criminal surcharges dropped 21 percent this year as compared to 2008 and therefore the cut in funding to sexual assault centers will help make up for the difference. There are 43 centers in Wisconsin that will be affected by this cut.

If you have been sexually assaulted, you need experienced representation on your side. Please contact the Wausau sexual assault lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
