11Some University of Washington students may be sitting next to a Level 3 sex offender this quarter. Two Level 3 sex offenders are currently enrolled at classes at the University.
This week, administrators sent an email alert to 42,000 University of Washington students notifying them about the status of the two men. Both James Cavitt, 47, and Daniel McInally, 42, did prison time for raping and molesting children.
UW spokesman Norman Arkans told King-TV that the men have the right to study at their University.
“They’ve served their sentences, they’re now out and they applied to and are qualified to be admitted to the University,” Arkans said.
Both McInally and Cavitt are under the supervision of the Department of Corrections. The University said it’s a coincidence that the two men decided to enroll at the same time.
Well let’s not try to better oneself via higher education after you get out of prison if you’re labeled a sex offender. It’s hard enough to go back to school at 40+ but do you really think these two students are going to get a fair shake? Every time you walk into a class room the stigmas with you what a burden. This is probably the reason more SO’s don’t go back to school. You could have kill 5 people and that’s ok nobody on campus need now. Another problem, the facts of your case are not disclosed so you may have urinated on a lawn or dated a 16 year old girl when you were 18 but everyone looking at you like your the scum of the earth. Fact is I commend the two for trying I hope they graduate.
