CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - College of Charleston officials say a professor accused of sexual misconduct with a student will not face criminal charges following an investigation by the school's public safety department.

A statement released by the school on Friday said following an investigation into former faculty member Enrique Graf, authorities determined that there is not sufficient evidence to support an arrest or criminal charges.

Graf, who was a piano professor at the school, had submitted his resignation in June amid the investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct with a student.

Investigators say Graf denied all allegations of sexual misconduct made by the student. While he confirmed the two did go on trips together, Graf claimed there were never any sexual advances of any kind.

Graf began working at the College of Charleston in 1989 as a visiting professor, according to College of Charleston Public Information Officer Michael Robertson.

The school's full statement is below:

The College of Charleston Department of Public Safety has completed its criminal investigation into certain allegations of sexual assault involving former faculty member Enrique Graf. After a thorough and comprehensive investigation of a criminal complaint received during March 2013, which included consultation with the State Law Enforcement Division and the Office of the Solicitor, the Department of Public Safety has determined that there is not sufficient evidence to support an arrest or criminal charges.

The Department of Public Safety has closed the investigation, but reserves the right to reopen the investigation if new evidence is presented. Anyone with any information about the case is encouraged to contact the CollegeĀ¹s Department of Public Safety.
