Ronald Ayers also indicated he lost interest in helping one of his students academically when she stopped showing her thong underwear by dressing more modestly, the San Antonio Express-News reported in Sunday's editions after obtaining e-mails through the Texas Public Information Act. Ayers, a 60-year-old economics professor, was fired last year after officials went through his computer following complaints from a graduate student who said she heard sexual noises coming from his office. A faculty hearing tribunal overturned Ayers' firing in May, saying the school's computer-use policy banning "obscene" materials didn't apply because his termination letter accused him of accessing "sexually explicit" materials. A final decision from the UT Board of Regents is expected this month. and Ayers also wrote about teenage girls who worked at thrift and dollar stores he frequented. In one e-mail, he wrote about buying a stuffed animal for a "goth" girl he liked and talking to her about her favorite punk rock band. "I may be actually making progress with this girl," Ayers wrote. "Music may be the quickest way to a teen girl's heart, after stuffed animals." Gabler said the school's policy doesn't prohibit e-mails of a sexual nature, although the policy does ban anything beyond "incidental" personal use of a work computer. (much more ickiness plus his pic at link) Certainly sounds like he's a groomer to me.
