A Tucson man was indicted by a Pima County Grand Jury last month on multiple counts of sexual abuse involving both a UA employee and a UA student.

Scott Meyer, 34, of the 2300 block of East Hawthorne, was indicted Dec. 6 after the University of Arizona Police Department investigated the victims' reports.

Both victims allege that over the past year, Meyer had "cordial" relations with them and then made unwanted sexual contact by touching their breasts, said Detective Sgt. Sal Celi of UAPD.

Legally, sexual contact is defined as any direct or indirect touching, fondling or manipulating of any part of the genitals or the female breast.

One victim was allegedly touched during her first time meeting Meyer. In the case of the second victim, there were several benign meetings with Meyer before he allegedly touched her.

Meyer's next appearance in court is a pre-trial conference scheduled for Feb. 1. He could not be reached for comment yesterday.
