A former adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law has been charged with indecent exposure after a 24-year-old student accused him of unzipping his pants in front of her along a street in St. Paul.
Clark Calvin Griffith, 70, of Minneapolis, the son of former Minnesota Twins owner Calvin Griffith, was named in a criminal complaint Wednesday, March 21, in Ramsey County District Court.
The complaint said the incident occurred Jan. 24 when Griffith and the woman met at a bar-restaurant near the college to discuss a law clinic in which she planned to work with him.
Griffith allegedly urged the student to sit next to him and asked her about how porn affected dating in her generation. According to the complaint, he also placed her hand on his groin area.
After insisting that he walk the woman to her car, he placed her hand over his groin area again, unzipped his pants and exposed himself on Victoria Street, the complaint said. He then reportedly kissed her.
Griffith, an attorney specializing in sports law, called the allegations “ridiculous” and said there was “nothing to this.”
“Anybody can charge anybody with anything, and I’ve done nothing wrong,” he said.
