IOWA CITY (AP) — The assistant director of the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy kept his job after making sexually inappropriate remarks to female cadets, but he lost his longtime role as its Violence Against Women Act training coordinator, state officials said Thursday.
Michael Quinn, 70, asked three female students whether “penis size matters” during a class on sex abuse investigation in June 2012, according to a complaint filed by Deputy Jessalyn McKeon of the Dubuque County Sheriff's Office. She said she was “so appalled I could not give an answer” after Quinn put her on the spot.
