And again it's not for a positive reason. Earlier, the portraits of the African-American professors had been defaced. Now, its former librarian has been charged with a long list of alleged crimes associated with the attempt to engage in sex with a child.
At the time of his arrest, Yahya Hussein Ahmad Melhem had been employed by Harvard Law School as the librarian for Islamic Law. The school reports he no longer works there.
He had been in Denver, Colorado to attend a library conference. Then he got nailed by an undercover deputy. According to Eric Levenson at Boson.com:
"Melhem was arrested on felony charges of criminal attempted sexual exploitation of a child, Internet sexual exploitation of a child, Internet luring of a child, and criminal attempted sexual assault of child. He posted $10,000 bond and is due back in court on Nov. 30."
Alleged crimes associated with the sexual exploitation of children are among the most heinous. Depending on how the school manages this scandal, it could reduce its brand equity.
