Malcolm Matthews — convicted as Malcolm Watson in Cheektowaga, N.Y., of sexual assault in the third degree — also got a job at the YWCA Niagara Region in fund development and communications in 2012.

His employment, which potentially gave him access to vulnerable girls, was terminated after three weeks when the YWCA learned of his status as a registered sex offender in the United States.

More recently, Matthews was a PhD student at Brock in the interdisciplinary humanities department until the fall of 2017. The university confirmed Friday he was employed as a teaching assistant, a position that sees a person teaching classes and grading student work.

A Brock spokesperson said Matthews, 48, is no longer employed at the university, although he could not provide further details, citing privacy rules.

In 2006 Matthews, still going by Watson, was an English teacher at Buffalo Seminary, an all-girls private school. Although an American citizen, he lived in St. Catharines with his now-former wife and their children.  (more...)
