Lafayette College has agreed to pay $1 million to five women on whose behalf the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the college for sexual harassment, The Morning Call reported. The suit charged that the college did not prevent Barry Stauffer, who was at the time a police officer there, from groping female employees and making lewd comments to them describing sex acts he said he wanted to perform. The college fired him in 2008, the same year the suit was filed. Last year, the Morning Call said, he pleaded guilty to two counts of stalking involving two female college employees.
