DAYTON, TN. (Times Free Press) -- The president of Bryan College now admits he may have made a mistake by suppressing a student newspaper story about a professor who resigned after being arrested on charges of attempted child molestation.

"If we have upset or offended anyone relating to this situation, we apologize. It was not our intent," President Stephen Livesay said in a statement. "Our intent was to look at the situation as Christians and do what was right. As humans, we are fallible."

Alex Green, editor of the student paper, the Bryan College Triangle, wrote a story about the resignation of Biblical studies professor David Morgan, who was arrested during an FBI child molestation sting. Authorities say he was trying to meet underage girls for sex at a Fort Oglethorpe gas station.
