A level one sex offender arrested three years ago for committing lewd acts on the campus of Cornell University was sentenced to six years in prison Friday.
Floyd Slater, Junior, was caught masturbating in front of a female student while she was showering. Slater is not a Cornell student or employee. He was sentenced on charges of public lewdness and attempted burglary.
Slater was rated a level-one sex offender in 2013 after he was convicted of attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl, Tompkins County records show. Level-one offenders are considered to pose a low risk of re-offending.
