Won't expel sex offender

Won't expel sex offender

A charge of possessing child pornography was stayed at the hearing. The girl claimed that Neurauter choked her and gave her a bra as a present. He then threatened to send her nude photos to her family if she told anyone about their relationship.

He'll be on probation for two years and will be added to the country's sex offender registry for the next 10 years.

A university student convicted of sexually exploiting a young girl may return to class after a judge delayed his sentence so he could finish his academic term.

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.

Marshall told reporters in a conference call Friday that Neurauter's presence might be triggering for students, including those who experienced sexual violence in the past.

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

More than 33,000 people have signed a petition urging the University of Calgary to expel Neurauter on the grounds that his conduct violates the university's sexual violence policy.

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

"While the courts have seemingly failed the victim, the University of Calgary now has the opportunity to change the narrative", Casswell wrote on the petition's page.

"It discourages victims from coming forward as perpetrators are accommodated and their actions are excused for the sake of not impeding their 'potential'".

Since news of his sentence, a petition demanding the University of Calgary expel Neurauter has garnered more than 40,000 signatures. "I feel betrayed by the university", she said.

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

He said he's not surprised the latest case is drawing so much outrage at a time when accusations of sexual assault and harassment have been toppling the careers of some of the most powerful men in Hollywood, the press and politics.

"Nobody has stood up and said no, during the whole thing - there was not one time where the judge or even the Crown said 'please, this is not right.' The victims are the ones who have been paying over and over, every time we went to court". She says she now regrets pushing him to accept the plea deal.

Neurauter's parents, Chris and Susan Neurauter, issued a statement to CBC News expressing support for their son and concern over how the media have covered the story. He said his son did not receive any special treatment but has been very upset by the sentence.

Marshall was asked whether the school is aware of any direct threats against Neurauter. "He's very remorseful ... he's learned his lesson".

"There were a number of safety concerns that we took into account in our decision", she said Friday."We know that victims of sexual violence ... may have been triggered by this incident and we were also anxious about his safety, given some of the commentary on social media".
