The things you find in drawers when you move.

Old credit cards. Single socks. Concert tickets. Phone chargers. Two foot long dead squirrels.

Savannah State University’s Chief of Police James Barnwell remains on paid leave following allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment.

Abda Quillian is an attorney in Savannah. She alleges multiple incidents took place over the last two years. Quillian says she filed complaints on behalf of two women currently serving as campus police officers. One was addressed to the University System of Georgia’s Board of regents, and another went to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a federal agency that enforces laws against workplace discrimination.
