Sex Offender Watch: Houses to Avoid While Trick-or-Treating in Palm Desert

Palm Desert Patch has aggregated a list of locally known registered sex offenders for you to take with you while out in the neighborhood on Halloween.

As children get ready to go home-to-home Wednesday night to celebrate Halloween, Palm Desert Patch has gathered a list for parents who are concerned about houses they visit.

Though police advise sex offenders to keep their lights off and not answer the door to trick-or-treaters, we've gathered a list of the 21 addresses in Palm Desert on file with the state for sex offenders.  (There are another 10 people who have not, or do not have to, provided addresses)

According to the California Megan's Law website, the following people have filed their addresses with the sex registry:  (You can also click here to view an interactive version, with links to maps)

This is why some former sex offenders go underground. The posting of their information disenfranchises and marginalizes them. Society has an obligation to reintegrate ALL criminals back into society after serving their sentences. Anyway, according to the DOJ, 97% of all sex crimes are completed by people NOT on the registry AND are completed by people well known and trusted by the victim such as Grandpa, Uncle, cousin, step dad, babysitter. Read the paper, stranger danger is rare and most crimes occur in the victim or perp's home. Don’t focus your attention on the registrant alone because most offenders in your community are not even on the sex offender registry.

Sorry, Bart. When it comes to protecting children, we need to know who these folks are. It's not worth the potential damage they do, especially when stats show that sex offenders are nigh impossible to rehabilitate.
Steven Hanson November 01, 2012 at 03:55 AM
And statistically, many are repeat offenders. Bart is right, sex offenders are often not on the registry but we can only react to what is. It's not quite logical to look at everyone suspiciously or just give everyone a free pass until we see their intentions. We all need to let instincts and responsible parenting do the best to protect our children.

This information would have been good YESTERDAY!!! Why is the Patch always reporting things the next day?? They are always late! I received this news at 7:38a the day after Halloween.

Hi J.W.! Sorry you didn't get this until today... we had it published by yesterday at 1pm, but because of that, it wouldn't appear until today's newsletter. We'll make sure to get it in next year's newsletter on Halloween.
