Herald – Troubling tweets disparaging white male college students may be just the tip of the iceberg for incoming Boston University professor Saida Grundy, who has a history of Internet misdeeds, the Herald has learned.

Grundy used the identity of a Virginia woman in a jealous fit over a man in late 2007 to create online accounts in the woman’s name, including one on an adult website for people looking for trysts, according to a police report obtained by the Herald under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Grundy got one year of probation after pleading guilty to malicious use of telecommunication services, a misdemeanor, according to online court records and Dan Dwyer, the court administrator at Washtenaw County Trial Court in Michigan. Two felony charges, identity theft and using a computer to commit a crime, were dismissed.

The cyber harassment took place in December 2007 when Grundy was at the University of Michigan, where she earned a master’s degree in sociology and a doctorate of philosophy in sociology and women’s studies in 2014.

The victim told police in Charlottesville, Va., that someone was creating accounts in her name and posting her personal information online, according to the police report.

A detective traced the suspect, identified as Grundy, to Ann Arbor and reached out to police there.

During an interview with detectives at her home in May 2008, Grundy said she had never met the victim but “this was a jealous thing regarding another man,” according to the police report.

Grundy had stopped seeing the man when she left for graduate school but they “started seeing each other again” in December 2007, and she suspected the woman and he “were back together,” the report said.

“I was crushed and hurt, I had a lot of stress and jealousy, I wanted to do something, so I made a profile for (her) on an adult website,” Grundy said, according to the police report. The website, fling.com, is for adults looking for trysts, the report said.

Grundy said she downloaded photographs of the victim from the man’s email, telling the cops she got into his account by guessing his password. Grundy also admitted that she created other online accounts in the victim’s name “just to annoy her” and so “random junk mail” would be sent to her.

When the cops told the victim that Grundy was “extremely jealous” of her and had posted her information on several websites, the woman said she had never met Grundy, the report states.

“I got a lot of junk emails from strange men seeking a sexual relationship,” the woman told the police, according to the report.

In a statement Wednesday night, Boston University said: “A number of years ago, when she was a student at the University of Michigan, Dr. Grundy made a mistake. She admitted the mistake, accepted the consequences, and brought closure to that case. Eight years later, we do not see any reason to reopen it.”

When reached on her phone Wednesday, Grundy said she “didn’t have anything to say right now.” She has not returned texts or emails for comment. Grundy gave a statement posted on boston.com yesterday that said: “When this incident occurred I was 24, and exercised the poor judgment of a heartbroken 24 year old. I took accountability then as I do now. I hold true to the lessons learned, and my life has since moved on.”

….

Saida! Just can’t quit Saida. Like as soon as I try to move on for the sake of my sanity and my blood pressure, there she is again smack dab on the front page of some news site. And I guess since BU inexplicably hasn’t fired her/revoked her invitation to come teach there I’m kind of obligated to keep updating people on her? Just so everyone is perfectly clear who BU is having come earn a nice salary to teach kids?

Someone who hates 42% of her new campus because of their skin color

And someone who sets up fake sex profiles for women dating the men that she likes.

That’s the type of person who is credentialed to teach at a major university. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
