College president arrested in Sturgeon Bay

An alleged sex crime in Sturgeon Bay has cost the job of an Indiana college president.


On Monday afternoon, multiple Indiana news outlets began reporting about the incident that led to the firing of Thomas Minar from Franklin College, located south of Indianapolis.  According to RTV6 Indianapolis, Minar was reportedly arrested by the Sturgeon Bay Police Department earlier this month on a variety of charges including using a computer to facilitate a sex crime, child enticement, and exposing a child to harmful materials.  Franklin College officials have since fired Minar from his role six months before he was expected to step down.


In an email to, District Attorney Colleen Nordin says the anticipated charges include Attempted Child Enticement and Exposing a Child to Harmful Materials.  A criminal complaint has not yet been filed, but Nordin believes it will be filed within the next couple of days.
