Deputies: Man was shot ‘because he’s a sex offender’

The Shasta County Jail has released the mugshot of a suspect who deputies said shot another man after learning he was a registered sex offender. Timothy Gould, 28, was arrested Monday around 5:30 p.m. after officers had identified him as a suspect in an earlier shooting in the City of Shasta Lake.

According to a news release from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, the motive behind the shooting was due to the victim ___ ____, 62, being disliked because he is a registered sex offender. Full Article

    “Gould was booked into the Shasta County Jail for attempted murder. Curran was released. Detectives are conducting follow up and examining evidence to determine if additional charges will be filed against Gould, and if charges will be filed against Curran.”

    Doesn’t the megans law website say it’s illegal to misuse the information gained from it? Not sure if that’s a misdemeanor or a felony but that should be at least one of the additional charges!

    And why does the new article get to contain a photo of the victim “Courtesy of the Megan’s Law Website”?!? Isn’t that another illegal use of the information contained there? Do news articles regularly post pictures of the victims or is this another example of the media’s “special handling” for registered citizens?

    The comments are unreal.

      I’m not even going to bother to read them, but they’re probably something along the lines of: “good riddance” – “he had it coming” or “one less pedo in the world.”

      Am I close?

    Nowhere in the article does it mention what year Roy Matagora’s conviction was. It’s hard to prove, but I think if it was 30 years ago this may not have happened.

    Good laws don’t get people killed; or shot.

    My associate at SOSEN brought out an interesting point. If the digital forensics investigation proves that the alleged murderers got the sex offender notification off of a private site such as Family Watchdog or City-Data, those sites could also be liable, at least civilly, for procuring the website information in violation of PC 290. Not sure of the logistics of filing such a suit or even submitting it as a criminal complaint, but this is something that should be looked at through a serious lens.
