Sad. Why would a college student date a 37 year old, even if he didn't have a criminal history?
Read the whole article next time, she didn't know his age or much else about him and they only dated about a month before she found out and broke up with him.
It's odd that she would want to date a non-student; even if he did look like he was only 30 and not knowing about his past. She was very pretty and could have found many better options among Utah's 12,000, or so, male students. One of the benefits of going to college is that people often meet their future spouse. She could have forgone college, worked in fast food and still met this guy.
