Nicholls State students are seeking justice after their former professor convinced them to paint their faces to satisfy his clown fetish.

Joseph Tokosh was a geography professor at two colleges and was on the tenure track at the university before student journalists exposed his behavior.

Nicholls journalists say Tokosh admitted to having a face paint fetish online and he required students to paint their faces for a class assignment.

Tokosh says the assignment was a part of cultural assignment but after his social media accounts were exposed he resigned in March.

Students submitted multiple police reports claiming sexual harassment and an investigation took place, but there were no charges filed against the former professor.
