The former Yale University professor who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the art museum in his home state of California said Friday he wants to donate his art collection to the California museum.
“I have the right to own art and I want to give my collection to this museum,” said Chris Aronson, a longtime Yale professor and the founder of the Yale Art Museum.
“I want to see it, I want it now.
I don’t want it after my death.
I want a museum that I can be proud of.
I think this museum is going to be an awesome museum, I really do.
I hope they make the right choice.”
Aronons daughter was also charged with sexually assaulting the woman, according to The Associated Press.
The former Yale professor has been in and out of jail on several occasions, and has been accused of assaulting multiple women.
The AP reported that the woman who was assaulted by Aronson was the same woman who accused the former Yale faculty member of assaulting her.
The Art Museum has said that Aronson will be held on a $10 million bond.
He is scheduled to appear in court for a pretrial conference in June.
