LINDA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - Survivors of violent sexual predators gathered today to protest the release of convicted sex offender Alan Earl James.

They put up posters in the restaurant where they held the rally which said, “We don’t want a rape whistle, we want change” and “You care more about the rapist than you do the victim.”

James was convicted of felony sex crimes on minors in 1981 and 1986 and sentenced to 28 years in state prison.

A judge has recommended his release, but his survivor Robert Nabors says he should stay behind bars.

Nabors said, “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.”

His placement hearing is tomorrow.

If he’s released, he’ll be placed in Jacumba Hot Springs community.

The people there protest his arrival.
