A Yale University psychiatry professor is accused of sexually assaulting five drunk male students and conducting 'inappropriate' medical exams on three others over a 20 year period at a research facility on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts.

Dr. D. Eugene Redmond also committed sexual misconduct against at least eight other undergraduates, recent graduates and one high school student in St. Kitts, New Haven and other locations, according to a former federal prosecutor's report released Tuesday.

The report said Yale officials failed to adequately respond to sexual misconduct complaints against Redmond first brought by students in 1994.

'We found no evidence that any faculty, staff, or administrators at Yale had actual knowledge of Redmond's sexual misconduct before it was reported,' the report said.

In a statement Tuesday, Yale President Peter Salovey called Redmond's alleged actions 'reprehensible and antithetical to the educational mission of our university.'

'The behaviors in question violate every expectation we have of our faculty, and the trust our students, and society, place in educators,' Salovey said. 'On behalf of Yale, I am deeply...
