Quote: "A Roane State Community College professor charged with sexual battery has had his massage therapy license suspended by a state board more than a year after a former student reported an incident to Knox County deputies when she was 19.

The Tennessee Massage Licensure Board suspended 63-year-old Gary Genna's license on March 28, saying he sexually assaulted numerous students at the school and in his home. As of the time of suspension, the board said Genna was still employed by Roane State."

Quote: "This is a sexual harassment case. The plaintiff was a tenured professor at the defendant college. In 1996, one of the professor’s students filed a complaint of sexual harassment with the college, alleging that the professor engaged in unwelcome sexual conduct and created a hostile educational environment. After a hearing, an administrative law judge determined that the professor had committed the acts charged. Consequently, the professor was suspended without pay for six months."
