Utah State University fired Marvin Roberts, the university’s assistant vice president of student engagement and diversity, over allegations that he assaulted a student, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. According to a copy of the letter of dismissal, the student -- about 40 years younger than Roberts -- reported feeling pressured into sexual acts with Roberts, and that she stopped him eventually by saying she is a lesbian. He said that the interaction was consensual, and that he stopped short of intercourse when she indicated her sexual orientation. A lawyer for Roberts did not respond to an inquiry from the Tribune. The dismissal letter said that he had not attempted to refute the allegations.
