A man charged with two counts of first-degree rape is no longer a professor at the University of Oklahoma.

OU spokesperson Catherine Bishop confirmed Thursday that the university had asked for Dwain Pellebon's resignation, which he tendered effective Tuesday, December 20.

Pellebon was a professor at the OU College of Social work. He's accused of raping and molesting at least one young girl. Prosecutors have charged him with two counts of first-degree rape, two counts of child sex abuse, and two counts of lewd and indecent proposals.

Pellebon is currently out on bond. He is under a strict curfew and cannot have contact with minors.
