Penn State is not the only university with a sex abuse and cover-up problem. Adrian College, a small liberal arts college in Michigan, has knowingly employed an admitted child predator for years.
Professor Thomas Hodgman, the director of choral music at Adrian College, is an admitted child predator with at least two victims. One of his victims sued and was able to get more than 200 pages of documents that outline Hodgman’s crimes and the cover-up at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, where Hodgman worked. The other victim cited in the documents has not come forward publicly.
I am Hodgman’s public victim. For years, he said my claims were “bogus.” He was lying.
But despite my meeting with school officials, providing stacks of evidence, and providing Hodgman’s signed confession ADMITTING THE ABUSE, the school refuses to remove him. They also refuse to warn incoming students, their families and the community of the danger. I also settled with the diocese for $1.6 million. Yet, Adrian does nothing.
Hopefully, that will change very, very soon.
