Former Wisconsin Badgers athletic department official John Chadima resigned early in January, just before allegations became public regarding his alleged sexual assault of a male student at a Rose Bowl party. Unfortunately, it's not the only allegation of misconduct that's emerged since the story broke.
Thursday, chancellor David Ward announced that police are investigating a third claim, which follows Monday's announcement of No. 2. All three reported instances have allegedly involved male victims. Few details are available about the latter two, but the original report was exceedingly documented by UW itself.
At the time of his exit, Chadima released the following statement:
I deeply regret leaving under these circumstances and disappointed those people with, and for whom, I have worked and dedicated my career for the past 22 years. I make no excuses and accept full responsibility for my actions.
I would like to express my heartfelt apologies to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, its athletic department, and all full-time, part-time and student employees who have been affected by my recent lapse of judgment. I ask for their forgiveness.
