Thousands Of Pedophiles In California Are Being Released After Less Than A Year In Prison

Thousands of convicted pedophiles in California, including those guilty of “the worst child sex crimes,” were released from prison after spending less than a year behind bars, according to a new analysis.

Citing the California Megan’s Law database, the Daily Mail found that over “7,000 sex offenders were convicted of ‘lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age’ but were let out of prison the same year they were incarcerated.”

“Others who committed some of the worst child sex crimes on the statute books served similarly short sentences, including 365 pedophiles convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child who spent less than 12 months in prison, 39 cases of sodomy with a child under 16, and three cases of kidnapping a child under 14 ‘with intent to commit lewd or lascivious acts,’” the analysis found.

Former Los Angeles sex crimes prosecutor Samuel Dordulian told the Daily Mail that he was “shocked” by the data and said they were “frightening for society.”

“Statistics clearly show that pedophiles don’t get reformed. They’re going to come out and they’re going to commit again,” Dordulian said.

“Letting these people out early, we’re allowing for a lot more victimization. And that’s terrifying,” he added.

One offender, 48-year-old Carlos Alexander Nahue, was convicted of “continuous sexual abuse of a child” in 2015 but was sentenced to just two days in jail.

“His Los Angeles court records say he was charged in October 2014 and pled no contest to the crime in January 2015 – but was sentenced to just two days in an LA county jail and five years of probation,” the analysis found. “He now lives one block from Royal Montessori School daycare and three blocks from Reseda Elementary School, according to the Megan’s Law database.”

Another offender, 47-year-old Gualterio Lopez Contreras was charged in May 2014 with “sodomy by use of force, sexual penetration by force, and continuous sexual abuse of a child.” After being convicted, Contreras was ordered to serve less than a year more in prison.

“He took a plea deal from Fresno county prosecutors, pleaded no contest to one count of a lewd or lascivious act with a minor in February 2016, and was sentenced to three years in Wasco State Prison,” the analysis noted. “But the court record says he was given credits of 790 days, which would leave just 305 days to serve, or less than a year.”

“A Megan’s Law record for Contreras from three years ago says he was released from prison in 2016. There is no longer a record for him in the current Megan’s Law database,” the analysis found.
