'No grounds' to expel student sex offender: University of Calgary

People Are Calling For This Convicted Sex Offender To Be Kicked Out Of School

Connor Neurauter, 21, was sentenced to 90 days behind bars after pleading guilty to sexual interference of a person under 16, during a court appearance in Kamloops on January 4.

The administration made the comment Thursday in the face of a petition signed by a growing number of people that calls for the expulsion of Connor Neurauter.

"This is important, because our policies do not apply to activity that occurred before the person was a member of our campus community", the school stated.

Marshall said Neurauter has been advised not to return to campus for the remainder of the term, and that the 21-year-old has not been on campus since Tuesday.

He was sentenced to 90 days in jail but was allowed to finish his second-year courses this semester before checking into a regional correctional facility in Kamloops. The court heard he was 18 when he and the girl had a brief relationship, Kamloops This Week reported.

Marshall said the school's newly-minted sexual violence policy will be reviewed after two years, as planned.

"This does not mean that the university condones sexual violence or harassment, nor does it mean that we prioritize the rights of a convicted individual over the safety of our university community", Dru Marshall, the school's provost told CBC.

The University of Calgary's Consent Awareness and Sexual Education Club said the delay Neurauter received is shameful.

"The Students' Union respects the position that the University of Calgary has taken regarding Connor Neurauter and recognizes that this is an incredibly complex and hard situation", a statement read. She says she now regrets pushing him to accept the plea deal.

Kaitlyn Casswell, the woman behind the petition, said she was disappointed at the University of Calgary.

"They're saying they're concerned for him having a successful educational experience and that they won't be able to keep him safe".

Speaking from Kamloops, she said it was "unjust" that Neurauter was allowed to finish the current semester.

"Obviously, it's unjust", she said.

According to the victim's mother, the case was repeatedly delayed to accommodate Neurauter's school and hockey schedule.

Now, staff says that the situation has gotten so bad that it would be unsafe for Neurauter anywhere on the campus grounds. He said his son did not receive any special treatment but has been very upset by the sentence.

By taking a plea bargain, Neurauter gave up his opportunity to tell his side of the story in court, his mother said. "He's very remorseful ... he's learned his lesson".

"I said this is because of you, because of you standing up", she said, choking back tears.

"I'm the only person who went to court every time there was a court date, even if it was just to set a court date".

The victim's mother, who can not be identified to protect her daughter's identity, told CBC News on Wednesday she wanted Neurauter expelled and expressed concern for the safety of students because there was a sex offender on campus.
