LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Edison State College Board of Trustees just unanimously adopted the policy to deny admission to sex offenders, sex predators and convicted felons, who crimes include kidnapping, rape and dealing drugs.

Florida laws allow Edison College to consider the past actions of anyone applying for admission.

Edison said earlier that if the policy is adopted, they will treat it as a case by case basis, with an appeal process for special circumstances.
