Dangerous sex offenders released back on to the streets under new policy
Over 10,000 sex offenders including convicted pedophiles and rapists have been released onto the streets thanks to Governor Jerry Brown and the ruling of a Superior Court Judge in Sacramento who say crimes such as “raping a drugged or unconscious victim” or “intimately touching an unlawfully restrained person” are not violent crimes. The Los Angeles Times reported that Sacramento Superior Court Judge Allen Sumner issued a preliminary order to California state prison officials which ordered them to rewrite their regulations stemming from Prop. 57.
The ruling means individuals convicted of offenses such as incest, pimping minors into prostitution and possession of child pornography will now be free to walk among the public again.
