San Diego Sexually Violent Predators
Sexually Violent Predators
District Attorney Bonnie M. Dumanis is committed to public safety. One of her top goals is protecting the citizens of San Diego against high risk sex offenders. Our Sex Crimes Division works with the SAFE Task Force and all law enforcement agencies in San Diego County to make sure that High Risk sex offenders who fail to register are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. There is a concentrated focus on Sexually Violent Predators, some of whom have been released into our community for supervised outpatient treatment. One Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) has been ordered into Phase V of the Department of Mental Health's (DMH) Sex Offender Treatment Program. David Chambless was placed at Jacumba in the southeast corner of the county in June 2008.

between the years of 1992 and 1994. In each case he was known to the families of the children he

Welfare & Institution Code section 6609.1, the public is permitted to comment on

Status of SVP David Chambless
David Chambless (DOB 8/24/60)
was committed as a Sexually Violent Predator in September 1998. He spent 16 years in prison for molesting two children (females age 7 and 9) in 1989. He was known to the family and had been babysitting one of children when she was assaulted. He sexually assaulted both girls and showed them pornography. His other crimes include receiving stolen property, residential burglary, drug possession and providing drugs to minors. He participated in the DMH in-hospital sex offender treatment program for more than 7 years. He was ordered into outpatient treatment on December 19, 2007 and was placed in Jacumba, CA in June 2008. On November 24, 2009, Liberty Healthcare requested his outpatient status be revoked for several violations including possession of adult pornography and a can of pepper spray. There were no new sex crimes committed. He was taken into custody by SAFE agents and remained in jail until December 7. At a hearing on that date, Liberty withdrew its request for revocation based on new information. Instead, the supervision team requested enhanced supervision terms to address the violations.
He continues to be closely monitored by Liberty, the court and law enforcement.
