You may have heard or read news about a UC Berkeley employee named Roy Waller who was arrested and charged with a series of rapes that occurred more than a decade ago in several Northern California communities. He is currently in custody in Sacramento. He is an employee in the UC Berkeley Environment, Health, and Safety Department and is on investigative leave. Needless to say, this news is shocking.
