A sex offenders released from prison in Orange County, California, has been rearrested weeks later for sex crimes, local station ABC-7 reports.
Thirty-nine-year-old Rudy William Grajeda Magdaleno was rearrested in Orange County this week — less than three weeks after he was released from prison — for allegedly exposing himself to parole resource center employees on April 17, according to Santa Ana law enforcement officials.
Police said that the day before the alleged indecent exposure, Magdaleno refused to charge his GPS monitoring system and thus authorities were unable to track him.
Santa Ana Police Chief David Valentin told the ABC-7 that he is “extremely” troubled that “this high risk sex offender was authorized for release, in spite of his significant documented criminal history.”
Magdaleno was one of seven sex offenders ordered released by Court Commissioner Joseph Dane last month. Magdaleno has been previously convicted for sexually assaulting a special needs woman, masturbating in public at a Santa Ana law firm, and breaking into the home of an 11-year-old girl while he was naked.
Magdaleno’s convictions include child molestation, indecent exposure, assault, battery, criminal threats, and inflicting injury on an elder adult. Since 2017, Magdaleno has violated his parole five times.
For his last conviction, Magdaleno served only 71 days of his 180-day minimum sentence.
The other six sex offenders released alongside Magdaleno last month have been convicted of sex crimes such as child rape, child molestation, and sexual battery, according to the report.
