CA: Placer County officials push back on transient release of sexually violent predator

Source: 8/21/23

Placer County and state leaders on Monday heard from people worried about the release and relocation of 66-year-old William ________, a sexually violent predator (SVP).

County leaders spoke after the Department of State Hospitals (DSH) and Liberty Health Care held a meeting to talk about possible locations to place ________.

He’s the man set to be released as a transient in the county, meaning he’ll live without a permanent address. While this doesn’t mean he gets dropped off at a bus stop, concerned officials are fighting the potential move.

It’s a recipe for disaster in terms of his programming, and it creates a bigger threat and a bigger risk of his failure, which could translate into future harming of other victims,” said Morgan Gire, Placer County’s district attorney.

________has a history of sexual violence dating back to the 1980s. He was sentenced to 31 years in state prison for his crimes.

This would be ________’s second release. In 2014 he was released for the first time and arrested in 2017 for possession of child pornography.

Last year, a Placer County judge ruled that the county would need to search for housing for ________, as part of the Conditional Release Program.

I love reading articles where the registry not only causes hardship on registrants but it also causes hardship on the community, also Love how the people in the community feel helpless because of the registry, if they never knew this guy was moving into their county I’m pretty sure they still would protect their kids the same exact way as if they knew he was in their county in the last 20 years I rarely see kids in the neighborhoods outside playing like we did was back in the 80s and 90s The registry put end to that.
On the other hand I do understand where these people are coming from this guy is a (SVP) he sounds like he’s extremely dangerous, so I understand why they don’t want him in their community.
Me Personally I don’t want street vendors on every single corner in my community BUT what can I do about it, The only thing I could do is wait until the state of California passes a law Prohibiting street vendors from setting up shop in my neighborhood

We need to push hard for a path to get off tier 3 . This is a key element for people on this hit list who otherwise can’t get off through how the new tier law is written. Push back , fight back & advocate abolishment to rid this unconstitutional tier registry system !
