FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - University of Maine at Farmington officials announced the termination of a part-time faculty member Tuesday after the school reviewed allegations that he sexually abused a minor at a New York City school in the 1990s.

University President Edward Serna announced in a statement that Bruce McInnes had been terminated on Jan. 10. The school found out about the allegations in the fall, placed McInnes on administrative leave and conducted a review, The Sun Journal reported.

McInnes, 83, was named by the plaintiff as his abuser in a claim filed in the New York State Supreme Court on Nov. 20, 2019, against the Grace Church of New York, the Grace Church School, and the Episcopal Diocese of New York, the newspaper reported.
