MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News) The provost at U-W Milwaukee will decide whether the campus police chief will be punished for trading sex-related messages with a student on social media. An independent investigator found that Chief Michael Marzion's conduct was "inappropriate and unprofessional," but it was not bad enough to violate school policies.
The student claimed that Marzion engaged in sexual harassment, but investigator Gary Gerlach said the student prompted the messages. Gerlach, a former Milwaukee County circuit judge, did not recommend that Marzion be disciplined, and-or receive training on sexual harassment.
The chief has not commented.
The school says provost Johannes Britz has two weeks to study the report, and decide what action to take -- if any.
