A student convicted of sexually exploiting a 13-year-old could return to campus after a judge delayed his sentence so he could finish college.
More than 40,000 people have signed an online petition calling on the University of Calgary, in Alberta, Canada, to expel Connor Neurauter, 21.
The junior hockey player pleaded guilty in 2017 to sexual interference of a 13-year-old girl when he was 18.
He faces 89 days in jail to begin in May once the academic term ends.
During his sentencing, the court heard how he had solicited nude photos from the girl after the two began a brief sexual relationship that did not involve intercourse.
The girl said that at one point, he choked her before giving her a bra as a present.
He then threatened to release the nude photos to her family if she did not keep their relationship a secret.
