Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — A former North Carolina State University diving coach is cleared to stay in the United States for now.

John Candler did not disclose his criminal record when he applied for U.S. citizenship years ago. He was convicted of molesting a child in another state in the 1960s.

A judge recently ruled that Candler could stay in the United States.

The government denied a motion to re-open the case.
