Officials notify residents of sex offender living in Valley Center
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Sheriff's deputies went door-to-door in Valley Center Friday to inform the public about a convicted sexually violent predator now living in the neighborhood.
Mark Pliska is living in an RV park in the 1500 block of Woods Valley Road. Pliska was convicted in 1983 of sexually assaulting teenage boys and then re-arrested in 1998 for exposing himself to children. He was released from prison in 2006.
Deputies visited 110 homes within a half-mile radius of Pliska's home.
"We feel like crime prevention has worked very well in that the community and the offenders all know what the rules are. Everybody knows who's who and what's what," Lt. James Bolwerk said.
Deputies also notified two nearby schools of Pliska's whereabouts.
