Submission + - Runner-Up of Man of the Year Jailed For Pedophilia

An anonymous reader writes: Acclaimed geneticist William French Anderson, who was runner-up for Time Magazine's Man of the Year in 1995, was sentenced to a 14 year jail term for molesting his assistant's daughter. Prosecutors argued that Anderson began molesting the girl when she was 10. She has since suffered depression and considered suicide. Anderson's lawyers argued that he is too valuable to science and medical research to be put in jail. Many of Anderson's colleagues, including a Nobel Prize winner, have sent letters to the court in support of him. His lawyers will appeal the sentence.
