Parole compliance sweep nets 3 arrests

GPS-monitored gang member William Collin was arrested because he recently missed his curfew, officials said.

GPS-monitored parolee and high-risk gang member William Collin was arrested because he recently missed his curfew, officials said.

PALMDALE – An AB-109 probationer suspected of selling marijuana out of an apartment, a GPS-monitored gang member who missed his curfew, and a paroled sex offender in possession of amputee porn were arrested during a Valley-wide parole compliance operation Thursday.

A team of six sheriff’s deputies, one probation officer and two parole agents descended on locations in Palmdale, Littlerock and Llano to see if GPS-monitored sex offenders were in compliance with their parole conditions, according to California State Adult Parole Operations Supervisor Larry Dorsey.

The LA County Sheriff's parole compliance team conducted the operation.

Dorsey said the team had computers in their vehicles that allowed them to track the sex-offenders while driving to the locations, which made the sweep a whole lot easier.

“If we see that they’re at another location or at another house, we will pop up at that other location just to see if there are any kids there,” Dorsey added.

The first location, an apartment complex in the 38600 Block of 11th Street East in Palmdale, was a last-minute add-on to the operation, Dorsey said.

Probationer John Gonzales was not targeted during the operation, but he was arrested after he claimed possession of several bags of marijuana.

William Collin, one of the 20 high-risk gang offenders monitored by GPS in the Antelope Valley, had recently missed his curfew, officials said. The team arrested Collin, 23, for violating his parole conditions and he was booked at the Palmdale Station.

At the second Palmdale location, the team searched for GPS-monitored sex offender Jose Sanchez, who had recently gone missing.

“His ankle bracelet went dead, so we put a warrant out for him and we haven’t been able to locate him since then,” Dorsey said. “We received information that he may have been at his last known address on record.”

The team searched an apartment in the 200 Block of East Avenue Q-10, but could not locate parolee Sanchez.

Deputies found marijuana in a potato chip container at one location.

An AB-109 probationer at that residence was arrested, after deputies found several small packages of marijuana stuffed in a Lays Potato Chip container.

John Gonzales, 26, told deputies that the packaged marijuana was for his personal use, Dorsey said.

Gonzales was arrested for possession of marijuana for sales. Since Gonzales is an offender released to county probation for community supervision under AB-109, the probation officer on scene stepped in.

“The probation department is going to do what they call a flash incarceration, where they’re arresting him and he’s going to jail for 10 days,” Dorsey said. “They will go to court to see if they can get his AB-109 revoked… he also has the marijuana for sales charge pending with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.”

The new charge could extend Gonzales’ probation for one more year, Dorsey added.

The probation department could also petition the court to place Gonzales on a 180-day revocation, essentially sending him back into custody for 180 days, officials said.

The team visited two more locations before wrapping Thursday’s operation. A GPS-monitored sex offender at a trailer in Llano was complying with his parole terms, but a monitored sex offender in Littlerock was not.

“He was arrested for possession of pornography on his computer,” Dorsey said.

William London, 40, had several images of amputee porn on a laptop at his house, Dorsey said.

Two more locations were scheduled as part of the Thursday’s operation, but the team did not get to those locations because there wasn’t enough time.

    Maybe they should make him an amputee of sorts, if you know what I mean. I’m sorry, but I hate pervs. Even though being a registered sex offender doesn’t automatically make you a perv. I have seen a case where it was touching a girl’s but in the club, a mistaken identity, that caused someone to have to register. But this dude was on parole, so it must have been more serious.
    I heard the LASD used to put salt-peter in the water at the county jail to prevent inmates from raping each other. That sounds like a wonderful condition of parole for pervs who violate.

    Sex Offenders’ Use Of Pornography

    In research conducted by Dr. W. Marshall, almost half of the rapists that he studied used pornography depicting consenting sex to arouse themselves, preparatory to seeking out a victim to rape. (21) Another investigator, Dr. M.J. Goldstein, found that far more of the sex offenders than the non-offenders he studied wished to, and often did, emulate the acts they saw depicted in pornography. (22) In still another study, most of Dr. G.G. Abel’s sex offenders said that pornography increased their appetites for deviant activities (and these were the men who reported the least control over their deviant urges). (23) Other investigators have reported that rapists and child molesters use pornography incitefully, both immediately prior to their crimes and during the actual assaults. (24) Still another type of evidence comes from a study conducted by Darrell Pope, a former Michigan State Police officer, who found that of 38,000 cases of sexual assault on file in Michigan, 41% involved pornography-exposure just prior to the act or during the act. 25)

    this sex offender really did nothing wrong – sure, possession of any type of porn is probably a violation of the terms of parole because he is a sex offender – but I think this is a misguided rule – sex offenders are men who’s desire for sexual pleasure was so strong they broke the law to get it – do you really think denying them legal porn is the best way to prevent them from re-offending in the future? I would MUCH rather let them have legal porn then to leave them with no way to get any sexual release and have them eyeing our children.

    Ya amputee porn is weird, but legal. dont forget, no man can control what he is attracted to, its all in the brain. If you were attracted to toasters, then there would be nothing you could do about it – you would be sitting in front of your PC looking at a pic of a Kenmore 4-slice toaster with auto crumb reducer and doing your thing :)

    Amputee porn, midget porn, as long as its legal, I don’t care, as long as it keeps them happy and satisfied. Then maybe they wont be as tempted to violate their parole and go out and molest, rape and kill our women and children.

      Wow, I actually agree with this! Let this man be as long as he keeps his fetishes confined to the computer in this home and stays away from our women, girls and boys.

      Amputee porn? Is anyone sure he was using it to be aroused or was it something he found funny or interesting.
      Since when is rape about sex? I’ve always heard it is about control?
      I agree with Sammy and Letlow. Leave him alone.

        Rape is about sexual pleasure – control is just something a rapist needs to have in order to rape. If it was all about control then why rape a girl? Why not just force her to paint your house or wash your car?
