SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A hearing that will decide where to place the so-called “bolder than most” rapist is set to take place in October.

According to documents sent to 10News, the Department of State Hospitals proposed that Alvin Quarles live at 43050 Desert Ranch Road in Jacumba Hot Springs.

Quarles was convicted and sentenced to 50 years in prison in 1989 after being convicted of attacking and raping four women.

In 2013, Quarles became eligible for parole but was instead transferred to a state hospital because one of his victims objected.

He earned his nickname because he made his victim’s male partners watch or participate in the sex crimes.

“I don’t believe he’s suitable for release at this time,” Dr. Cecilia Groman, who created a report on Quarles’ rehabilitation, testified at a release hearing.

Before the placement is finalized, the public is able to comment on the proposed location through September 5. Anyone who would like to make a comment is asked to call (858) 495-3619. Comment will also be accepted at the hearing on October 12.

County Supervisor Dianne Jacob issued a statement condemning the possible placement Wednesday afternoon: 

“Callous and careless state officials are targeting rural East County by again moving to dump yet another sick sexually violent predator into the community. Making it even more outrageous, this particular serial rapist is known as ‘bolder than most.’ Jacumba has already been forced to house at least two other predators over the years. He has no place in that town -- or any community. His only home should be a prison cell.”
