San Gabriel Valley : Paroled Sex Offender Moved After Outcry
A day after his release from prison, a convicted serial sex offender has been relocated from his parole site in Fontana as a result of strong public outcry in the area, parole authorities said Tuesday.
But Ted Jamerson, 41, whose last victim was a 15-year-old Pasadena girl, is still in Southern California, said Christine May, spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections.
Authorities declined to reveal his location, but regional parole administrator Alfred Martinez said Jamerson is “definitely out of San Bernardino County.” He remains in a large parole region that includes Riverside, San Diego, Orange and Imperial counties and a small part of Los Angeles County.
His last victim, who is now 17, has been in hiding since Friday. On Tuesday, the teen-ager issued a statement through the Women’s Coalition, a Pasadena women’s rights group, saying that she still fears Jamerson, said Lyn Miller a member of the coalition.
“It is wrong that they let him out,” the girl’s statement read. “I’m scared. I’m scared for the other little girls that they let him out.”
Until Jamerson is out of the public eye, his last victim told Miller, she will remain in hiding. “Her parents know where she is, and she is safe,” Miller said.
