Breaking news from The Chronicle of Higher Education for “Where Are They Now?”:
Scholar Known for His Studies of Women in the Work Force Is Convicted of Sexual Abuse
By Robin Wilson
Robert W. Drago—a prominent scholar of issues affecting women in the work force, including academe—was convicted of misdemeanor sexual abuse of a minor last week in Superior Court of Washington, D.C.
We last read about Randy Robert back in September, 2011; his once live-in love the lithe Laurie Bonjo had blown a gasket when her daughter reported that Drago, then Director of the prestigious and proudly feminist Institute for Women’s Policy Research, had attempted to cop a feel or two. Or maybe three. Who knows? The seventeen-year-old did not talk to the press. Her mother did.
For the fleeting pleasure of feeling up a teenager, Drago’s been sentenced to eighteen months’ probation. According to the Chronicle, he’s also been given the life sentence of being listed in the National Sex Offender Registry. I almost feel sorry for him.
