Early Release Sets Sex Offenders Free
A sex offender deemed as high-risk by the Santa Ana Police Department was released was rearrested two weeks after his release from the Orange County Jail. Rudy William Grajeda Magdaleno was released on April 13th after serving 71 days of a 180-day minimum sentence. His release along with seven other high-risk inmates was granted by a court commissioner which sparked controversy among local law enforcement in the county. Magdaleno was at a Parole Resource center on April 17th where he exposed himself to the staff members and had failed to charge his GPS tracking monitor which violates his probation. After fleeing the scene, police found him and arrested him on Thursday.
Santa Ana Police Chief David Valentin said, “I find it extremely troubling that this high risk sex offender was authorized for release, in spite of his significant documented criminal history” The previous charges of Magdaleno include sexual assault on a mentally disabled person, trespassing and breaking into a home while naked and peaking into an 11-year-old’s room, and trespassing at the Santa Ana Law office and masturbating on the floor while staring at a women. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office said the sex offenders were released by Court Commissioner Joseph Dane despite being charged with tampering with their GPS monitoring devices.
“These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to re-offend,” said District Attorney Todd Spitzer “They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break.” The Orange County Sheriff Don Barness said that the jail population has been down 45% since March 7th, so there was no reason for their release.
