NH AG launches sexual misconduct investigation over Dartmouth professors

By  | 

HANOVER, N.H. (WCAX) New Hampshire authorities are now launching a criminal investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct of three Dartmouth College professors.

The College announced last week that the three psychology professors --Todd Heatherton, Bill Kelley, and Paul Whalen -- have been placed on paid leave and had their access to campus restricted.

In a statement Monday the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office said it has "learned from the college that it has received allegations of sexual misconduct" and has launched a joint criminal investigation with Hanover Police, New Hampshire State Police, and Grafton County authorities.

Neither the College or the AG's office have provided any details about the charges.
