UPDATE: UT Dallas has issued a statement, "There is nothing more important at UT Dallas than the safety and security of our students. Two years ago we admitted a student without knowing their legal history. Based on recent court action and other information over the last several days, that student will not participate in UTD commencement activites, will not attend UT Dallas graduate school and will not be present on campus as a student or as a guest. I am grateful to the UT Dallas students, faculty and other community members who have shared their concerns, disappointment, and outrage over this student's presence on our campus.

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - An accused rapist from Baylor is finishing his degree at a North Texas university, but students at that school want him gone. 

Students at UT Dallas are petitioning for Jacob Anderson to be kicked off their campus. Anderson is a native of Garland and recently attended Baylor where he was a former fraternity president.

Anderson is accused of raping another student in 2016. He was initially charged with four counts of sexual assault. However, a judge let him plead no contest to a lesser charge, keeping him out of jail and off the sex offender registry.

Anderson is set to graduate next week with his degree from UT Dallas.

Still, students are circulating an online petition saying they want him gone because the student body deserves to be protected from sexual predators.
