WSU professor arrested for rape
Washington State University Associate Political Science professor Andrew Appleton, 51, was arrested for the rape of a juvenile female Tuesday.
Moscow police met Appleton, a Moscow resident, at East City Park and arrested him at the police department, Lt. Paul Kwiatkowski said.
“He didn’t answer any questions after that point,” Kwiatkowski said.
The rape charges stem from 2010, when Appleton had sexual relations with a 16-year-old female, according to the Lewiston Tribune.
Kwiatkowski said the female, who is almost 19, is a Moscow resident.
He said Appleton’s bond was set at $100,000 by the Latah Country 2nd District Court.
Appleton paid his bond Thursday, and has been removed from WSU duties.
