Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas will hold an impromptu press conference to update the public and media with critical information regarding the release of violent sexual predator Lawrence Brown.
WHEN: Today, Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010, at 6:00 p.m.
WHERE: Orange County District Attorney’s Office in the first floor law library, 401 Civic Center Drive West, Santa Ana, CA 92701
WHO: Lawrence Joseph Brown, 52
WHAT: District Attorney Tony Rackauckas will hold an impromptu press conference to provide the public and media with updated, critical information regarding today’s scheduled release of violent sex offender Lawrence Brown.
Brown is a violent, convicted sex offender who has served 25 years of a 49-year sentence for brutally sexually assaulting two young girls after kidnapping them in broad daylight. He is scheduled to be released from Chino State Prison at 5:00 p.m. today. The Department of Mental Health has failed up to this point, to submit a Request to File a Petition to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA), making it legally impossible for the OCDA to file a Sexually Violent Predator petition to have Brown civilly committed.
