University of Calgary not reviewing sexual violence policy despite Connor Neurauter controversy

Neurauter, at age 18, sexually exploited the an unidentified 13-year-old girl.

Many who signed the petition gave the reason that expulsion would show that U of C sides with victims, or that it takes students' safety seriously, but Marshall wrote that failing to do so is not proof that Neurauter's rights are being prioritized.

"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.

Administrators at the University of Calgary say that Connor Neurauter, a student convicted of sexual assault, has been told not to return to the school and will be escorted off the property for his own protection should he try to return. He'll be on probation for two years and will be added to the country's sex offender registry for the next 10 years.

The B.C. prosecution service says he served the first day of his sentence January 4, but the judge permitted him to serve the remainder starting May 4, after finishing his semester at the University of Calgary.

According to the court documents, he solicited nude photos from the young girl after the two started a brief sexual relationship.

The student union has said it will wait for the outcome of that review and encouraged students on campus to seek out sexual violence support services if they need to talk to someone.

The University of Calgary could not expel Neurauter since the incident happened before he was in college.

"We recently became aware that University of Calgary student Connor Neurauter was convicted in British Columbia and given a three-month sentence".

"I think the university is trying to tip-toe around the issue instead of making a very strong statement about it, and I think they're doing themselves a disservice by doing that", said Casswell. "I was hoping for more", she said.

He therefore submitted that his court being a lower court, is bound by the decision of the appellet court in the instant case. Justice Tsoho explained that the consent judgment is not on merit and can not stop his court from assuming jurisdiction.

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

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

"We're taking into account his rights and the rights of students on our campus", said Marshall.

Neurauter, now 21, entered a guilty plea to the interference charge last week, a decision his mother told CTV News was made to spare his victims the trauma of a trial. "He's frustrated that he's missing school", said Neurauter.

Neurauter says his son was advised by his lawyer not to speak to the media - but he's speaking out on his son's behalf.

"He made the decision to go to school well after this had taken place just in effort to get his life on track". "He's very remorseful ... he's learned his lesson".

Representatives from the University of Calgary are working with Neurauter to determine how he'll be able to complete his courses to finish his current semester.

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.

"I feel betrayed by the university", she said.
