Formerly known as James Wolcott, it was recently revealed that he spent six years in a mental institution for shooting and killing his mother, father and sister. He eventually got his PhD in psychology and has been teaching at the university for the past 27 years. So, should he be allowed to continue teaching?

Psychologist and attorney, Bonny Forrest, Ph.D., argued in favor of allowing St. James to continue teaching on tonight's Factor. She said the school is exemplifying redemption and forgiveness.Psychologist and author Wendy Walsh, Ph.D., said she's proud of St. James for turning his life around.
