Former Cal Poly professor charged with indecent exposure

The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney's Office has officially filed charges against former Cal Poly professor, Shaun Kelly, for indecent exposure.

Back in May, the University Police Department was called out to the Robert E. Kennedy Library on the Cal Poly campus after witnesses reported a man flashed his genitals in the library. When officers arrived on scene they immediately started questioning witnesses for information and a description of the man. By the description given to the police, they were able to positively identify Kelly, who taught Agricultural Engineering. At that time, police did not arrest Kelly, but forwarded the information to the District Attorney's office. The DA's office reviewed the case and filed charges against Kelly.

Cal Poly conducted an administrative personnel investigation which resulted in Kelly being served with a Notice of Pending Disciplinary Action-dismissal which was effective the beginning of fall quarter of 2012.

A collective bargaining agreement prohibits Cal Poly from imposing the disciplinary sanction until after an arbitrator has heard the case. The hearing was scheduled for January 15. On December 7th, Kelly notified Cal Poly that he was resigning from his employment and therefore withdrawing the hearing. Kelly further stated he was not admitting to the disciplinary allegation against him.
