University of Michigan Knew about David Daniels’ Sexual Misconduct

By Francisco Salazar

An unreported deposition has revealed that the University of Michigan knew about David Daniels’ sexual misconduct when he was hired in 2015.

According to a report out of Detroit, various professors raised concerns during the hiring process of Daniels about his well-known sexual misconduct toward male students. Three years later after an internal investigation at the university, U-M found that Daniels had sexually harassed more than 20 students.

The University of Michigan has denied that school officials knew about any sexual misconduct concerns about Daniels.

Daniels is facing criminal charges in Texas for alleged behavior that occurred before his work at the University of Michigan.

The unreported deposition comes on the same day as Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of rape and sexual assault and as the American Guild of Musicians found Plácido Domingo guilty of sexual misconduct.
