University of Miami Medical Student Accused of Posting Pics to Fetish Sites

The University of Miami is investigating after one of its medical students was accused of posting pictures of female classmates on various websites for sexual fetishes.

The Miami Herald reports the 25-year-old medical student has been suspended.

The student is suspected of copying pictures of the women from their social media accounts and uploading them to sex websites. The images were typical photos of the women — including selfies, or in groups with friends at bars or the beach.

The allegations came to light last week when at least two of the women saw their photos on the websites and filed for restraining orders against him. The story didn't say why they believed the student was suspected of posting the pictures.

"The University is always prepared to take appropriate steps as needed to ensure the optimum learning environment for all of our students. In this regard, the University has retained the services of a nationally-recognized firm to assist those members of the University community affected by the unauthorized postings," UM said in a statement Wednesday.
