Sex Offenders Information

Registered Sex Offenders

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) of 2000 provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at, or employed by institutions of higher education. The CSCPA is an amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Act.

This Federal law, along with the laws of the State of Texas, requires all persons who have been convicted of sexual assault crimes to register their residence and other information with local law enforcement and to also make any post-secondary educational facility with which they become involved as a student or an employee aware of their presence in that institution. 

Local law enforcement is additionally required to submit information to the police department of any college or university about the presence of a registered sex offender on such a campus. 

Registered sex offenders must register with University Police within ten days of their affiliation with LeTourneau University. 

Failure to comply with this law will cause the registrant to be arrested and charged with a felony offense. Other University sanctions will be applied, including:

  • Immediate termination of employment for employees
  • Immediate dismissal from classes and removal from campus residential facilities

LeTourneau University is required to inform the campus community that a list of sex offenders, if any should be employed or enrolled, will be maintained and available for review at the University Police Department located in the Student Affairs building. 

Additionally, the CSCPA further amends the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) to clarify that nothing in the Act can prohibit an educational institution from disclosing information provided to the institution concerning the presence of registered sex offenders. 

More information is available online from the Texas Department of Public Safety.

 

Sex Offense Policy and Procedure

LeTourneau University neither condones nor tolerates sexual misconduct on the part of any person. Unwanted sexual advances, contact or assaultive behavior are violations of local policy and of the law. 
 
Should any person become the victim of any form of sexual assault, we encourage the victim to contact University Police immediately to report the act. A Sexual Assault Victim Advocate (SAVA) will be made available to the victim and options for reporting will be explained in detail.

As with any criminal act, LeTourneau University strongly encourages all sexual assault victims to take positive measures to ensure that a police report is made and that all possible evidence is properly gathered. University Police personnel are trained in facilitating these measures.
 

Policy for Addressing Registered Sex Offenders

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000 amends the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, the Jean Clery Act and the Family Education Rights and Privacy act of 1974. In accordance with the provisions of these laws, LeTourneau University Police Department provides, on their web page, a link to the Texas Department of Public Safety Sex Offender Registration site.
