Thousands of registered child molesters and pedophiles are being let out of prison after completing mere short months of prison sentences in California. The state’s database of sex offenders shows.
Prosecutors say that this data is “terrifying” and “shameful.”
In its latest investigation, the British publication Daily Mail reported that more than 7,000 sex offenders plead guilty to conducting “lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age,” yet they were let out after completing just a year or less of a prison sentence.
“Others who committed some of the worst child sex crimes on the statute books served similarly short sentences, including 365 pedophiles convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child who spent less than 12 months in prison, 39 cases of sodomy with a child under 16, and three cases of kidnapping a child under 14 ‘with intent to commit lewd or lascivious acts’, according to the data,” the outlet reports.
Former Deputy District Attorney for Los Angeles County, Samuel Dordulian, told the outlet that the analysis is “shocking and frightening for society.”
“Statistics clearly show that pedophiles don’t get reformed. They’re going to come out and they’re going to commit again,” Dordulian said. “Letting these people out early, we’re allowing for a lot more victimization. And that’s terrifying.”
There are several disturbing cases reported by The Daily Mail. For example, Carlos Alexander Nahue, a 48-year-old resident of Reseda, was convicted in 2015 of “continuous sexual abuse of a child” and received only two days of prison sentence in an LA county prison and was released on five years of probation. He now resides less than a mile away from five Elementary schools.
The California Department of Justice records shows that the state has 61,770 registered sex offenders across 58 counties, and the state has seen a 12% spike since 2019.

California, a deep blue state, has a state legislature that is seemingly focused on making it easy for sex offenders to get out of prison with shockingly minimum accountability. For example, in 2020, a Democrat state Senator, Scott Weiner, authored a bill that would “end discrimination against LGBTQ young people” and exempted LGBTQ people from being listed in the state’s sex offender registry.
The bill, SB145, was signed into law by Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom in September 2020.
“This bill would exempt from mandatory registration under the act a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register,” the bill text reads.
“It’s appalling that in 2020, California continues to discriminate against LGBTQ people, by mandating that LGBTQ young people be placed on the sex offender registry in situations where straight people aren’t required to be placed on the registry,” Wiener said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. “SB 145 simply ends that discrimination by treating LGBTQ young people the exact same way that straight young people have been treated since 1944.”
