Ohio University says an English professor accused of sexually harassing several students will resign effective November 1.

50-year-old Andrew Escobedo’s resignation comes months after two students filed complaints, and an investigation found evidence backing them up. The English students said Escobedo groped them and made harassing comments during gatherings at two bars in Athens in December of 2015.  A handful of other students made similar complaints.
