Kim Fender, the longtime library executive director in Cincinnati, was asked to comment on an "investigative report" which found more than 700 criminal charges filed in incidents at libraries outside of Carl Monday's reach. It included the recent arrest of Jamaica Hill who, with a guyfriend, was caught performing a sex act in a stairwell at the library. When officers approached, Hill fled on foot, leaving her pants, underwear and shoes.
"Under what circumstances would I think going to a public building and having sex in a stairwell would be of interest to me? I really can't understand their motivations for those kinds of behaviors. Every library I have ever worked in has had similar behaviors."
