Officials propose placing sexually violent predator in Spring Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - State hospital officials Thursday proposed placing a convicted pedophile and sexually violent predator on a 2.2-acre piece of private property in Spring Valley.

Terry Stone, 63, was convicted on three separate occasions for committing lewd and lascivious acts against children between the ages of 6 and 11.

Stone's crimes spanned a 10-year period, and in 1994, he was sentenced to 19 years in state prison.

Prior to his release from custody, the San Diego County District Attorney's Office filed a petition to commit him as a sexually violent predator. Instead of being released, Stone was committed to a state hospital as an SVP in February 2003.

Last year, Stone filed a petition seeking conditional release from the hospital, and in December, a judge ruled that he could safely be released into the community for continued treatment and supervision.

A hearing at which the public can comment on the proposed release is scheduled for March 17.

Prior to the hearing, members of the public can send their comments on the proposed placement to the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force, by e-mail, at sdsafesdsheriff.org;

-- by calling SAFE at (858) 495-3619, or;

-- by mail at SVP Release/SAFE Task Force, 9425 Chesapeake Drive, San Diego, CA., 92123.
