About a Dozen Sex Offenders Work, Learn at SDSU

About a dozen registered sex offenders are employed or enrolled at San Diego State University, school police confirmed Monday.

SDSU’s list of 11 or 12 offenders includes at least one student and a handful of faculty, staff and contract workers, according to SDSU Police Lt. Randy Lawrence. None of them live on campus, and they are not allowed to work at the child care center. Full Article

    Good for them!
    Not saying anything wrong with that.. Alot of my side jobs are with Colleges… and no one asks and no one tells…

    Its when it comes to the jewish faith buildings, they use instant check software like the schools

    San Diego State University is a positive example of an employer who looks at the whole person and not the label of “sex offender” when making a decision regarding who to employ. We thank you!

      They fired me after fifteen years of honorary service to the University, and spending countless hours volunteering to make the SDSU environment a better experience for everyone. My crime involved noone on campus, and I didn’t work with children or in the dorms. I don’t know who they are being “fair” with. That’s not my experience. I’m sorry, but this is salt on an old wound.

    This is a good example of rehabilitation.

    “No one on the list is suspected in the string of recent sexual assaults at SDSU. Lawrence said those reported attacks were mainly student-related and possibly involved acquaintances or someone the victims met at parties.”

    Exactly! So the registry proves itself useful again! Er…what??? The registry isn’t helping the campus police solve these crimes? You mean police suspect the victims all knew their attacker??? But the sex offenders — but, hey, we knew, what??? Huh???

    GLAD TO HEAR IT. Someone is thinking, using their judgment and discrimination at SDSU. Thank you for looking at the ENTIRE person and not simply a label. Thank you for not being a sheep who rolls over and discloses personal information on demand, without justification. Formerly incarcerated people need to work, want to learn, and THANK YOU SDSU for making that possible. To. Ms. Luna and others concerned about focusing on “Megan’s Law” and other such lists, please read this article: http://www.upworthy.com/whos-most-likely-to-sexually-abuse-a-child-the-answer-shocked-me-but-it-is-important-to-know?c=ufb1

    I used to volunteer in Prison Ministries. We would go into large/warehouse like halfway houses. Depending upon their status, individuals would be allowed to leave during the day and attend college? We had individuals with drug dealing pasts, attempted murder of a police officer and so on. This is probably going on everywhere . So , why is someone with a sexual related conviction any different? As a parent, there isn’t a day that goes by where you turn the tv on and see violence related shows, sexual related shows and so on? Many of these singers/reality show people go around half naked , perform half naked and so on? Go visit Vegas! We have had a few ex Presidents, Senators and well known Pastors with some rather sexual related pasts ? Yet , we continue to almost portray those convicted of sexual related offenses as monsters? Seriously !

    @ Bluewall This explains why I got kicked out of the local Milkin JCC where I took my little one for swimming lessons. You literally must get passed 4 armed guards including an x-ray machine and metal detector, they’re so afraid of getting bombed. I found it ironic that the place built by the Junk Bond King, a felon, stopped me in the parking lot and told me I was no longer welcome because of my criminal history.

    Considering the level of protection they require, maybe I’m not part of society’s most hated group after all.

      I would consider a lawsuit. It is not up to them to determine who is allowed on their campus, only to follow the law which they seem to have trouble with to begin with.

    This actually posses me off. Do you know how many state and federal jobs I’ve applied for and not gotten so much as an interview??? Sheesh!

    Kidding aside, I’m glad some of us have found good employment, even if it is with The Man.

    SDSU is not the only university that employs SOs or has SOs enrolled as students. Many community colleges and universities mirror this example (including the one where I used to teach). Hopefully there will be more stories like this in the news, without the fear mongering that goes along with these kinds of stories.

    • j

      Can you site some examples without divulging any particulars or compromising?

      I was told by an officer when the web site came out, that virtually all registrants
      had been summarily fired from their jobs without explanation. And most remain unemployed or under-employed.

      As I see it, it is still another level of punishment and a back handed compliment to say these “lesser beings” are being “helped” by the law (sarcasm intended)…
      We still continue to be demeaned even under the color of law and pretext of following the law.

      Why can’t we just simply be left alone as the recidivism statistics suggest – or –
      put all violent felons on the list to exemplify what a farce the whole thing is.

  10. Double A

    I earned my B.A. before I went to prison. I considered getting my masters in order to teach in college, but I wasn’t sure if it would be a waste of time and money because I felt no one would hire me. After reading this article it has renewed my dreams of teaching. I have a few things I’d like to do before pursuing that career.

    Thank you for sharing this article.
