A second man arrested in a Cedar City prostitution sting last week previously served as the administrator of a college.

Andrew Groft, 38, was booked Friday into the Iron County jail on suspicion of sexual solicitation, according to an online jail log. An Enoch address was listed for Groft, the former president at George Wythe University, an unaccredited liberal arts school in Flagstaff, Ariz.

Southern Utah University Vice President Wesley Curtis was also among the eight people arrested. SUU has placed Curtis on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

According to the George Wythe University website, Groft was named the school's president in 2009 after serving as president and provost of its Cedar City campus. He was replaced as president in June.
