A Columbia professor has been charged with incest - accused of a sick sexual relationship with a female relative, prosecutors said. Political science Prof. David Epstein, 46, bedded the young woman over a three-year period ending in 2009, according to court papers. He was arraigned before a Manhattan judge on a single felony incest count. University spokesman Robert Hornsby said that Epstein "is now on administrative leave and will not be teaching students." Epstein, who specializes in American politics and voting rights, has taught at Harvard and Stanford and often is quoted by news organizations. He also has blogged on The Huffington Post. Epstein faces up to four years behind bars if convicted. He was released on his own recognizance.
