Description

The Ledger exposes wrongdoing by Dr. Peter Ray, a meteorology professor at Florida State University. The first story sheds light on misuse of public money for a hurricane research truck requested by the professor. The rest of the series reports on married Ray's pattern of sexually harassing students and colleagues at FSU. Although five women accused him of harassment and he admitted having a relationship with 19-year-old student Melissa Sanders, Allen reports, the university finds no wrongdoing, but takes away his department chairmanship. The stories include copies of the professor's archived e-mails to the student.
