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. Currently five sexually violent predators (SVPs) have been ordered into the community for supervised outpatient treatment which is considered the final phase of the Department of State Hospital's (DSH) Sex Offender Treatment Program. A profile on each of these individual is listed below.

The Department of State Hospitals is the agency responsible for locating and recommending housing for SVPs who have been ordered into our community for ongoing treatment. The District Attorney's Office is not involved in this process other than to notify the public once a proposal has been made and to ensure that the public's concerns and objections are brought to the court's attention before there is a ruling on the proposed location.
