The 31-year-old adjunct instructor is accused of sexually assaulting one student and harassing at least one other, according to reports.
The man and his wife, a former graduate student, are accused of working together to manipulate students into sex. The sex allegedly began as consensual and progressed to a point where consent was revoked, according to police.
The man has been banned from teaching at USF and has stopped teaching at several other universities. He still runs an improv comedy venue with his wife.
Multiple complaints were filed against the man, claiming that he and his wife would invite students to their home after shows to drink, do drugs and – in some cases – sleep over.
The man denies having sex with any USF student except his wife.
Anyone can be accused of a sexual offense, which is pretty scary. Police tend to side with alleged victims, even if there is no evidence to actually confirm a crime occurred.

You need to obtain legal counsel right away so that you do not say or do anything that could negatively affect the outcome of your case.
