Franklin College president fired after sex crimes arrest

The president of Franklin College has been fired after being arrested for sex crimes. A news release from the college said the board of trustees is “stunned” by the “deeply disturbing incident.”

President Thomas Minar was arrested in Wisconsin for child enticement and exposing a child to harmful materials.

He’s been released on bond, but directed to not contact children and not use social media.

He became Franklin’s president in 2015, but recently announced he would be stepping down at the end of this school year
