Quote: "UGA art professor James Barsness had sex in a public place, with an undergraduate he was supervising, during UGA's 2012 Maymester study abroad program in Costa Rica. He then told the young woman not to talk about the encounter because he would lose his job.

He was right.

On Wednesday, the Board of Regents voted to deny his appeal and uphold his tenure revocation"
