HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - An investigation has concluded that a Yale University
psychiatry professor sexually assaulted five students at a research facility on
the Caribbean island of St. Kitts and committed sexual misconduct against at
least eight others.
The report by former Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly was released
Tuesday. She investigated Dr. D. Eugene Redmond, who retired last year from the
Yale School of Medicine as disciplinary proceedings were imminent.
Redmond denied the allegations. Messages seeking comment were left with Redmond
and his lawyer Tuesday.
Daly concluded Redmond sexually assaulted two students in the early 1990s and
three others between 2010 and 2017. She reported the assaults involved
nonconsensual touching of male students.
The report says Yale officials failed to adequately respond to complaints
against Redmond in 1994.
Yale President Peter Salovey says he's sorry Redmond's behavior wasn't stopped.
