Professor Sentenced In Assault Case

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) _ A Central Connecticut State University professor has been sentenced for making unwanted sexual advances toward a student.

Moises Salinas pleaded no contest Wednesday in Superior Court to fourth-degree sexual assault. He was sentenced to two years of conditional discharge. Conditions of his release include no contact with the 22-year-old woman and leaving the country.

The 45-year-old psychology professor, who had worked at the university since 1999, resigned in February.
Authorities say he asked the woman to accompany him to a restaurant in February 2010 to discuss her graduate school plans and then groped her.

Salinas’ attorney said his client is seeking a non-teaching job out of the country. If he remains in the U.S., authorities could put him on probation.
