Charles Lawrence
CLEVELAND MUSIC SETTLEMENT

The CEO of the Cleveland Music Settlement, Charles Lawrence, resigned late Friday, just as he was arrested in Cleveland Heights for gross sexual imposition. The arrest stems from a Feb. 1 police report filed by a female.

In a statement, the Music Settlement says it knows of no instances of improper acts involving Lawrence and students at the school. The Cleveland Music Settlement also says it's launched a search for its next president.
