Hearing March 17; public comment Feb. 14-21

February 13, 2014 (Spring Valley)--The California Department of State Hospitals (DSH) has recommended the placement of  Terry Stone, a Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) at 2919 Millar Ranch Road in Spring Valley. This address falls within the jurisdiction of the Rancho San Diego Sheriff's Station.

Terry Stone was convicted of molesting several children between the ages of 6 and 11.

A public forum regarding the proposed location will be held before it is finalized by the court. Comments will be accepted during the hearing on Monday, March 17 at 9 a.m. in San Diego Superior Court Department 53, 220 West Broadway, San Diego.

Supervisor Dianne Jacob voiced strong opposition in a statement released to media.

“Enough is enough. This is the third time in recent months that the state has moved to dump a sexually violent predator in East County,” she said. “This latest predator, Terry Stone, is a diagnosed pedophile who carried out lewd and lascivious acts against children. The state is now proposing to put him in our community, close to Steele Canyon High School. That’s outrageous. No community in any part of San Diego County would stand for that.”

She added, “As I’ve said before, if these vile men must be housed somewhere, the only sensible spot is outside the gates of Donovan State Prison, where other sexually violent predators have been placed.

The proposed placement is the sole responsibility of the Department of State Hospitals

Other  schools closest to the proposed placement area are: Jamacha Elementary, Hillsdale Middle School, Rancho San Diego Elementary, Loma Elementary School and Cuyamaca College.
