Neighbors in El Cajon are livid, after learning that ten registered sex offenders are now living together in one house in their kid-friendly community.
Calling it “a living nightmare,” these parents say they are now fearful for their children’s safety, and are demanding answers from the state.
According to California’s Megan’s Law website, the crimes these registered sex offenders living here are convicted of range from sodomy with a minor under age 18, to lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14.
Dozens of El Cajon residents, primarily parents and grandparents, took to their street on Thursday evening, outraged over the placement of ten registered sex offenders in one house in their neighborhood: community filled with young children that is situated less than a mile away from an elementary school.
“The kids here have had so much freedom and now all of a sudden, the parents, the grandparents are scared to death, and rightfully so,” said neighbor Susan Garcia.
