JACUMBA HOT SPRINGS, Calif. (KGTV) - Sheriff’s Deputies and members of the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force notified residents of Jacumba Hot Springs and Boulevard Thursday about the placement of a sexually violent predator.
Law enforcement officers went door to door in the East San Diego County communities to make neighbors aware that Alan Earl James will be placed into the area on or before April 25.
James is scheduled to move to 45612 Old Highway 80 after he is released from Department of State Hospitals Coalinga, sheriff’s officials said in a news release.
Officials said James has felony convictions from the early 1980s for kidnapping, sexual battery, rape by force, and lewd and lascivious acts against children under 14 years old. The victims were primarily girls, but boys were also preyed upon, officials said.
Some of James’ victims argued against his release.
“He will re-offend if he gets out. He did it once before. They gave him a slap on the wrist for raping me, and when he got out, he raped two other girls,” Robert Nabors told 10News at a previous hearing.
County Supervisor Dianne Jacob opposed James’ placement in her community, citing a high number of sexual predators who live in her district.
