California releases thousands of convicted pedophiles
A Daily Mail investigation found that pedophiles in CA receive short jail terms even if convicted of horrific acts such as child rape.
An analysis of the state database of sex offenders shows that in just a few months, thousands of child molesters are released from prisons.
The prosecutor’s office for sex crimes says the data is “terrifying” and shameful.”
The Daily Mail reports that more than 7000 sex offenders have been convicted of “indecent or indecent acts with a child under the age of 14” but have received only a year or less in prison, data from California’s Megan’s Law database says.
Los Angeles Attorney for Sexual Crimes Samuel Dordulyan told the Mail the data was shocking and said those who have been released are “frightening the public”.
“Statistics clearly show that pedophiles do not change. They go outside and commit crimes again,” Dordulyan said. “By releasing these people early, we are” re-enabling much more victimization. It’s terrible.”

Dordulian said as a lawyer who represents victims of sexual abuse, California Governor Gavin Newsom’s policies shorten prison sentences to reduce the population locked up.

“That has been the push for the last at least five years: letting people out of prison much earlier than what their sentences were for,” he said. “But these types of individuals, they’re not amenable to rehabilitation, and studies have shown that. They’re gonna harm another child — It’s a very, very scary trend.”

One 47-year-old who was charged with sodomy by use of force, sexual penetration by force and continuous sexual abuse of a child took a plea deal and was sentenced to three years; he ended up getting credits of 790 days, leaving 305 days of prison time to serve, according to the Daily Mail.

Another convict currently lives within three blocks of two elementary schools after he was convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child in 2015, according to the Daily Mail. He was charged in October 2014, pleaded no contest in January 2015 and was sentenced to two days in a Los Angeles county jail and five years of probation.
