A 73-year-old college professor has been arrested, accused of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 16.

Waterbury police charged Mirvet Muca, an associate professor of political science at Naugatuck Valley Community College, with sexual assault and risk of injury to a child after the alleged victim reported inappropriate contact.

Kiddie porn, however, was the lesser of Professor Ward’s crimes against children. Ward was a serial child molester. And officials at Penn and its prestigious Wharton School knew it — or should have — for years. And even knowing about Ward’s penchant for sexually abusing children, the school kept him employed and even helped finance his sexual access to kids overseas. The story of the “brilliant” Professor Ward was chronicled in a 2007 issue of Philadelphia magazine. The piece begins in 2006 with Ward being busted by immigration agents after returning from a trip to Thailand, where he enjoyed copious amounts of sex with prepubescent boys. Fortunately for prosecutors, he brought home the DVDs to prove it. It wasn’t the first time Ward had been charged with sex crimes against children. Go To Site
