The woman, who doesn’t want to be identified, said she went to university officials Feb. 7 after the employee suggested that they could be “friends with benefits” during an extra-help session he offered to the woman and another female student.
“I had started to become very uncomfortable with some of the questions he was asking, such as how many sexual partners we had, if we had ever done drugs or did crazy partying before,” the woman said in an interview via Facebook.
She said she had brought moose meat and lobster that day for the employee after he asked her to provide it in exchange for better grades. She said she knew it was wrong, but she was struggling with some of his morning quizzes and they counted for a large part of her final grade.
His questions and suggestions left the woman shocked and, she believed, visibly uncomfortable.
“I felt my face was burning,” she said.
After the help session, the employee came out to the woman’s car to get the moose meat and lobster.
When they got to the car, she said he demanded they have sex.
“He claimed I had to do it, as my grades depended on it,” the woman said. “He continued to say ‘Yes you will, you will do it,’ over and over, even though I made it clear to him at this point that I was very uncomfortable.”
She said the instructor suggested they could go to a hotel room or his office in the university, and that no one had to know.
