A Colorado State University professor was cleared of all-sex realated charges when he acceopted a plea Wednesday, July 26, that cleared him of all sex-related charges, according to the Fort Collins Coloradoan.
Boris Kondratieff, 52, an entomology professor, was accused of sexually assaulting his step-daughter.
Kondratieff entered an Alford plea, which allows him to maintain innocence, to misdemeanor assault and harassment charges during a hearing in Larimer County District Court. The agreement also included a two-year deferred sentence, which was imposed immediately, according to the Coloradoan
CSU spokesman Brad Bohlander told the Coloradoan that CSU will determine what actions to take after reviewing the case.
Bohlander also said that after Kondratieff’s arrest, CSU removed him from doing any outreach work on behalf of the university and required a second staff member to be present during class and office hours. Those restrictions will continue.
