A former University of Delaware student is speaking out after her allegation that her professor offered her a good grade in exchange for sex sparked both an investigation and student protests at her school.
“He told me what specific sexual acts he wanted to perform with me,” said the student who did not want to be identified.The student claims University of Delaware sociology professor Eric Tranby, who also served as her advisor, offered her an “A” in exchange for sex during the past school year. She also claims Tranby told her he had sex with other students in his office after normal hours.
“He said, ‘Oh well, you know, we just cover up the webcam and pull the blinds down,’” she said.
The student says she refused to have sex with the professor which caused Tranby to send her an email apologizing and begging her not to tell anyone.
“I told him that I would tell and he begged me not to, saying I would ruin his career and he would give me an ‘A’ anyway,” she said.
