Miles’ attorney Peter Ginsberg released a statement Thursday that the allegations of attempting touching of a student are “baseless” and “inaccurate.” Miles also maintained in the investigation that he hadn’t done anything wrong.
Following the investigation, Miles could no longer have one-one-one contact with student employees, couldn’t hire them to babysit and couldn’t text or call them.

Obviously, this is a very serious situation, and isn’t a joking matter. At the same time, it’s important to recognize that the investigation cleared him of any criminal behavior and found the contact to be “inappropriate.”
This isn’t a Harvey Weinstein situation.

Now that Miles is at Kansas, we’ll see if the Jayhawks respond at all. I’m guessing they won’t. The situation happened eight years ago, and he wasn’t found to have violated the law. Let us know in the comments what you think of the situation.
