U of C will escort sex offender off campus if he comes to school

The University of Calgary says a student who has been convicted of sexual interference would be escorted away if he tried to go on campus.

A news conference was held Friday in response to the Connor Neurauter situation.

Provost Dru Marshall says the 21-year-old has been advised not to return to school this term and the university will continue to review the situation.

The university has said it does not have the grounds to outright expel Neurauter because his crime took place before he was a student there.

Neurauter pleaded guilty to a count of sexual interference with a minor in Kamloops, B.C., in November and was sentenced to 90 days in jail earlier this month.

The case stoked outrage because the judge allowed him to serve all but one day of his sentence starting May 4 once he had completed his semester at the University of Calgary.

Critics have said allowing a sexual offender to finish his school year before going to jail puts his rights ahead of his victim’s.
