Student Sells Sex – To Professor – To Pay for Tuition
A University of Michigan law student who needed extra money for tuition and couldn’t get a loan because of the credit crunch has been charged with soliciting sex for money on Craigslist. From the Ann Arbor News:
The student told police she was advertising sex acts online via Craigslist to help pay tuition costs. For an in-state student, U-M Law School tuition is $41,500 a year; out-of-state students pay $44,500.
But the creepiest thing about this story is that the prostitution came to light after she accused one of her clients, Yaron Eliav – who just happens to be an associate professor in Michigan’s Department of Near Eastern Studies – with assault. Since this blog is focused solely on student loan issues, I won’t go into the salacious details here, but if so inclined, you can read them for yourselves at the links above.
