CHICAGO — A Truman College English professor has been charged with sexually assaulting a former student.
Max Gulias II, 45, was charged with criminal sexual assault in connection to the March 20 incident involving a 28-year-old woman.
That day, the two met at a bar before going to Gulias' apartment in the 1500 block of South Sangamon Street in the University Village neighborhood, prosecutors said.
The woman fell asleep before waking up and finding Gulias raping her, prosecutors said.
She later notified the building's security and was taken to University of Illinois-Chicago hospital, prosecutors said.
The woman was Gulias' student in 2007 and 2008. For a few weeks in 2011, the two dated, prosecutors said. The two re-established a dating relationship recently, prosecutors said.
Gulias turned himself in on Monday, prosecutors said. He was ordered held on $30,000 bail Wednesday.
