University of Alaska, Anchorage police issue campus-wide alert against accused sexual predator David Yesner, former archaeologist at the university

I reported earlier about the Title IX investigation against former University of Alaska, Anchorage archaeologist David Yesner, who was found guilty of multiple counts of sexual misconduct and banned from campus. The university police have now issued a campus-wide alert against Yesner and asked the university community to report him immediately if spotted. Perhaps this is a good example of how all institutions should deal with sexual predators?

Here is the announcement:
