Eleven people filed the EEOC complaints against University of Rochester professor Dr. Florian Jaeger. The complaint outlines years of gross abuse of power, control and intimidation by Jaeger. Wednesday, our news partner, News10NBC spoke with Dr. Celeste Kidd to hear her story firsthand.

"To me he was a bully, he ruled by intimidation," said Kidd. One day after the University of Rochester's Board of Trustees announced it would conduct its own independent investigation into the accusations against Professor Florian Jaeger, one of the EEOC complainants is speaking out.

"Personal, professional, there was no line," she says of Dr. Florian. "That was his mentorship style. And if you had a problem it, the problem was yours and you’d be judged for it and would suffer professional consequences."

Dr. Kidd met Dr. Jaeger when she started her graduate studies in the Dept. of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. She says Jaeger used his position of authority to coerce students into having sexual relationships.

The EEOC complaint says Jaeger subjected students to sexual innuendos, even sending an illicit photo of his genitalia. The complaint says students who wanted to excel had to please Jaeger sexually and socially. Kidd, who is now an assistant professor, says she’s coming forward to protect her students.

Dr. Kidd says, "It’s one thing to have a professor that abuses his power and exploits you in that way, but to come forward and be betrayed and attacked by the system that is supposed to protect you is another thing... and that’s not acceptable."

Kidd tells us she doesn't have faith in the board’s new investigation, just based on what she says Jaeger has already subjected the students to.

Dr. Kidd says, "It’s a complete shame that their good intentions, their intelligence, their potential is being held back by a corrupt administration."
