MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A University of Minnesota law professor is in police custody on suspicion of criminal sexual conduct, harassment and false imprisonment.

According to Hennepin County records, 54-year-old Francesco Parisi was arrested at 12:45 p.m. Monday. In a statement, a university official said they were aware of the arrest, but hadn’t discussed the matter with Parisi.

Parisi received his J.D. from the University of Rome and his PhD from George Mason University and has published 10 books and more than 200 papers on economics and law, according his bio on the University of Minnesota’s website.

A U.S. Marshall spokesperson said their agency is involved in the case, at the request of Minneapolis Police.

    The Christian laws for sexuality are Cosmically right. If you follow them, you will experience momentary frustration here and there, but long-range happiness, and you’ll probably end up surrounded by kids and grandkids who adore and trust you. Sad, how the world cannot get that through its head–either one! it doesn’t want to. The world views sex as recreational, and has labeled the children who Naturally result “tissue.” Abortion is a torturously painful death for the child. Imagine, trading a few minutes of fun for the memory that we killed our children. Now, let me get my head down to avoid the stones from the Land of Love and Tolerance.

  2. Italy is a third world cesspool. Their courts and lawyers are corrupt beyond belief. All of European courts are corrupt. You cannot teach foreign law to students. It’s irrelevant.
