CEDAR CITY -- A Southern Utah University vice president has resigned following his arrest and prosecution in a Cedar City police prostitution sting.
Police arrested Wesley R. Curtis in December with seven other men. Curtis was the school's vice president for Government Relations and Regional Services.
On Monday he pleaded guilty to one class B misdemeanor count of solicitation in Iron County's Justice Court. A judge ordered the 58-year-old Curtis to pay a $623 fine.
Curtis resigned from SUU in an apology letter posted on the school's website on Monday.
In the letter, Curtis expresses shame and says his actions betrayed his family and SUU colleagues.
Curtis also says he is seeking professional help.
SUU President Michael Benson accepted the resignation in a statement also posted on the website.
