Coronavirus UPDATE: High-risk sex offender re-arrested two weeks after release

May 4, 2020 | Coronavirus

Even before the Coronavirus hit, California jails had greatly reduced the number of inmates because of the end of the bail system. As the Orange County DA in the above video indicates, the number of inmates has been so reduced that it isn’t necessary to release even more to obtain proper social distancing.

A high-risk registered sex offender was arrested Thursday for allegedly exposing himself at a parole resource center, just two weeks after a controversial early release from the Orange County Jail.

Seven inmates who were deemed high-risk sex offenders were released early in April by a court commissioner, triggering criticism and warnings from county law enforcement officials who said the release was not necessary because the jails were not overcrowded.

One of them was Rudy William Grajeda Magdaleno, who was released April 13 after serving 71 days in jail on a 180-day minimum sentence. Officials say he has an extensive criminal history including convictions for robbery, narcotics possession, criminal threats and child annoyance. . . .
