Thousands of Convicts on the Streets in California After Only Serving a Few Short Months in Prison

According to a recent revelation, thousands of convicted pedophiles in California have been released back onto the streets after serving only a few short months in prison.

More than 7,000 pedophiles found guilty of lewd or lascivious activities with a kid under 14 years of age, according to a Daily Mail study that looked at a database of convicted sex offenders in California, were freed from jail after serving less than a year.

The Daily Mail’s Josh Boswell, a senior reporter, broke the news, telling Tucker Carlson on Tuesday that the California Justice Department would not give him information on the state’s registered sex offenders, so he had to circumvent restrictions on the Megan’s Law website.

On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” he said that he had written a little code to bring out some of that public information…” we asked them to give us the data, but they refused, So I had to develop this script to put it together so I could show the public.”

A federal law known as Megan’s Law mandates that law enforcement release information on sex offenders to the general public. It was adopted during the Clinton presidency in response to the 1994 death of 7-year-old Megan Kanka in New Jersey.

Boswell referred to specific instances of predators convicted of ongoing sexual abuse of a child who spent only months in prison, and in some cases, just two days behind bars, saying the results of his search were “quite shocking.”

According to the database, one of the sex offenders who was released back onto the streets less than a week after being found guilty of ongoing sexual assault of a kid now “lives one block from a daycare.” said Boswell.

The analysis looked at 54,986 sex offenders who were listed on the Megan’s Law website as of July 2019 and discovered 76% of them had victimized children. The information was gathered by contrasting the dates that were publicly disclosed for a pedophile’s conviction with their date of release.

“There’s a sense that maybe there are a few people who haven’t really been convicted of anything super serious. Actually, there are 19,000 of the 55,000 that we saw who are convicted of this molesting under 14 [year olds.] These are serious offenses,” said Boswell. “These are people that are spending a few months in prison for these really awful heinous crimes.”

When queried about the report’s results, a number of California officials pointed the finger at Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom’s policies, which have permitted convicted felons to receive shorter terms and early release.

Boswell claimed he contacted both Newsom’s office and the California District Attorney, both of whom Boswell claimed either denied responsibility for the incident or disregarded it.

Boswell said that Gavin Newsom hadn’t mentioned this at all in his own words. They were claiming that this wasn’t their issue. It’s a courtroom. They are the local DAs. Actually, California as a whole has a problem with this.

“Prosecutors I spoke to said this could be partly a result of wanting to release prisoners early from prison because they’re wanting to let non-violent offenders out and reduce the prison population. The problem is,” Boswell added, “among those ‘non-violent offenders’ are some of these pedophiles that have a high risk of re-offending, according to the studies done on those kinds of people.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Fox News Digital contacted the governor’s office and the California attorney general’s office for comments.  Neither of them responded.
