UCalgary faces pressure to expel sex offender whose prison sentence was postponed

January 12, 2018

The University of Calgary is facing pressure to expel a convicted sex offender after a judge postponed his sentence to allow him to finish his first semester. CBC reports that more than 18,000 signatures have been gathered on a petition calling on the school to expel Connor Neurauter, who was sentenced to three months in jail for sexual interference with a 13-year-old Kamloops girl. UCalgary’s policy on sexual violence says students and staff “alleged to have perpetrated sexual violence may be subject to the University's administrative processes and discipline systems in addition to the civil or criminal legal system.” UCalgary has released a statement saying that it is reviewing the situation and that it can confirm that Neurater was not on its campus this week. CBC | UCalgary | Metro News | Calgary Herald
