Quote: "In the spring of 2018, a student at the University of New Orleans told administrators biology professor Shawn Vincent asked her for sex in exchange for an A in his class. UNO administrators suspended Vincent immediately, and days later, when the student turned over to university officials text messages and an audio recording of Vincent, UNO ... fired him within hours."

"In an out-of-court settlement reached in August, the state paid the UNO student $20,000 to pull her lawsuit"
