Back to Jail. Forever. Most experts maintain deviants of this nature are incorrigible. That's the most mercy for this creature I can muster.

The downtown library is a child trap. Either get rid of the scum that hang out there, or close it.

Keep a close eye on your children, people! Locking up the big bad wolf isn't sufficient. Be with your children. Keep an eye on them.

This man was also living in Nisene Marks park, and was kicked out only after enough people complained to the sheriffs and to Ellen Pirie. Hopefully this will put him back in jail.

Get out again after these charges. If he was in Atascadero, he will be back there since he has proven his behavior is apparently ingrained in his thought process. He will probably die in prison if the courts do their jobs. Parents should still teach their kids never to talk to ANY strangers because many of those who would do them harm are not known to the authorities because they haven't been caught yet.

Yes! And don't rely on those portable plastic "Caution: Children at Play" signs to do the job for you.

It would seem that it is always a good choice for any dirtbag to opt for a jury trial in this area.

So is the Boardwalk. Think of how many people send their kids for a day of fun and say, "We'll meet you at the Double Shot in an hour?" The kids run off, the parents don't think twice...and yet there are endless ways for molesters and predators to snatch children and get them into a waiting car. All it takes is one smooth-talking adult to convince kids to go with him, and BAM, your kids are naked and prone on a hotel room bed. The amount of security guards vs. the amount of visitors on any given day is a challenge, and security is usually dealing with foul-mouthed teenagers or idiots who spit from the Sky Glider. It's a child predator's wet dream down there--WATCH YOUR CHILDREN.

The Santa Cruz Police Media Release Log has an interesting crime occurring at the Boardwalk yesterday. We'll see if it makes the Cops and Courts news tomorrow.

Make your own changes within your environment to accomidate what changes are happening in the world.
You sound like you never learned to trust yourself, to know the difference, to have confidence in your judgement, to smell a rat. Now project that stuff to your kids. Your scary too.

These perverse turds need to be locked up and removed from society for their entire lifespan. The recividism rate is nearly 90% according to the studies I have read. As a retired professional criminal investigator, I have first hand knowledge after contacting these perverts for interviews, most are very savvy on how and what to say to gain the confidence and trust of young children before using that trust to violate and destroy the children for their perverse forms of sexual gratification. They are addicts and cannot or will not allow themselves to be saved!

Not trying to defend this piece of garbage,but, if the "studies" you are referring to are strictly repeat offenders, I can agree. If,however, you take into account all those convicted of child molestation in the U.S., the rate drops to somewhere close to 37%, depending on which data is used. Law enforcement and the media seem to foster the idea that all molesters of children are predators just waiting for an opportunity to do it again. These are the ones we mostly hear about. Psychologists who work with people who have molested are able to categorize them into risk groups which has a bearing on how the courts proceed. For example, a person who molests a family member, as despicable as this is, is much less likely to reoffend than, say, a transient who victimizes a child he/she happens to encounter. Or the example of the trusted coach who is responsible for dozens of victims.

When Richard Nash was living in Nisene Marks near Aptos Rancho Rd with the Sheriff's permission, no one from the Sentinel reported it, and no one seemed to care very much that a convicted child molester was living in the State park. We sent emails to the paper, and no responses were returned.
This guy has had at LEAST three strikes, and this will be the fourth. Please let the DA know that you are following this story.

He needs life imprisonment. He will not change. Locking him up for a while and then releasing him will lead to a disaster.
