SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - A music professor at the University of Wisconsin-Superior has resigned over a criminal conviction in Utah.
School officials say Matthew Faerber was suspended when they learned he pleaded guilty in a 1991 attempted sexual assault charge, involving two 13-year-old music students. He was sentenced to six month in jail.
Faerber was hired in 1998, before the UW System required background checks.
When school officials found out about the case, he was placed on administrative leave on August 28. Faerber resigned on Friday.
