Charges were filed Friday morning against former Huntington University Vice President for Advancement Vincent Haupert in the Huntington Superior Court.
According to the affidavit, Haupert is being charged with battery, a Class B misdemeanor.
The charges came a few weeks after Haupert resigned from the university amid reports of an ongoing law enforcement investigation.
According to court documents, Haupert touched a 21-year-old man who was staying at his home in a sexual manner while the other man was asleep. When he was questioned by police, Haupert admitted the allegations.
Under Indiana law, a Class B misdemeanor is punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a fine up to $1,000.
A warrant has been issued for Haupert, with a bond of $7,000.
Huntington University has not responded to WBOI’s request for comment.
