Convicted Sex Offender With Good Grades Sues School

DEARBORN (WWJ) – A convicted sex offender with excellent grades is suing to get back into a Dearborn college, which expelled him when it learned about his record.

Thirty-eight-year-old Michael Branch of Detroit says his rights were violated when Henry Ford Community College kicked him out of school last year.

Branch’s parole officer had no problem with him attending the school if he stayed away from a campus day care facility. He’s now off parole.

Branch served a prison sentence for having sex with a 15-year-old girl in 2004. He said he believed she was older.
