Southeast Employee Pleads Guilty to Sexual Misconduct
By:  Ryan Tate

Cape Girardeau, MO -- Southeast Missouri State University employee Vincent Spicer pleads guilty to misdemeanor sexual misconduct, for touching a fellow employee inappropriately.

The incident happened in March of 2004, as Chrisna Parmer cleaned a bathroom.

"He came into the bathroom, put me against the wall, and began assaulting me," Parmer said. Parmer worked in the custodial department at SEMO; Spicer works in the facilities management department. Parmer did not return to SEMO after being on Medical Leave.

Parmer says she cannot go near the SEMO campus anymore, because it brings up bad memories. One thing that continues to bother Parmer is Spicer still works at SEMO.

"I'm disappointed they didn't handle it better and I hope there isn't another victim who has to go through this like I did," Parmer said.

"We want to make sure we keep the rights of both parties in tact because we want to be fair," SEMO President Ken Dobbins said. Dobbins says a school attorney will look at the plea and the ruling, discuss it with a County Prosecutor, and make a decision about Spicer's future.
