Michigan Tech Professor Pleads Guilty to CSC

A Michigan Tech Professor pleads guilty today to child sexual abuse.

62-year-old John Adler has pleaded guilty to 4th-degree criminal sexual conduct.

In exchange for the plea, prosecutors have dropped the 2nd-degree CSC charge that Adler also faced.

They’ve also agreed to not pursue any other charges against Adler in the case.

He could go to prison for up to 2 years, but there’s no date set yet for his sentencing.

Adler is on leave from MTU.

He’s a professor in, and former chair of, the Department of Biological Sciences.
