Monday afternoon, former University of Michigan professor of electrical engineering and computer science Peter Chen was found not guilty of first-degree criminal sexual conduct at the Washtenaw County 22nd Ciruit Court. The allegations against Chen – who is currently on paid administrative leave – included multiple instances of sexual penetration of a person under the age of 13, which allegedly began on April 1, 2017. The decision cannot be appealed due to constitutional prohibitions on double jeopardy. This is a developing story and will be updated. Read more about the results of the trial here.
