Former Rust College professor sentenced for raping student
HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. — A former professor at Rust College entered a guilty plea to a charge of sexual battery Monday morning.
Sylvester Oliver was facing a trial after being indicted for raping a student in his office.
Oliver was given a 15 year suspended sentence.
He is also facing five years of supervised probation.
In February, we reported eight other women who have come forward to say they were also attacked.
“All of these women reported the behavior. They reported the assaults, and nothing was done in every last one of them,” said Sam Cherry a partner at the Cochran Law Firm.
