University of Michigan Sexual Misconduct Lawyer – Wright & Schulte is investigating reports of sexual misconduct by University of Michigan doctor and athletics program physician Robert E. Anderson occurring over a 35-year period at UofM. The sexual abuse allegations against Anderson are said to be “disturbing and very serious,” according to a press release issued by the University, and include claims of unnecessary and intimate exams by a doctor with unrestricted access to male college athletes over a period of over three decades.
The allegations come in the wake of new legislation enacted in Michigan in 2018 that extends the statute of limitations for sexual abuse crimes past their previously narrow limits. Experts note that these kinds of physician-student sexual abuse cases hinge on the doctors’ power and access to the students, and that given the wide power imbalance and shaming relied on by the predatory abuser, it is not uncommon for victims to wait to report the abuse.
