CORRECTION: A press release issued Sept. 16, 2011, by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office incorrectly stated that registered sex offender Saeid Boustanabadi Maralan, 53, Laguna Niguel, was prohibited from entering Irvine City parks without prior permission from the Irvine Police Department. Maralan is allowed to enter Irvine City parks because its ordinance does not exclude sex offenders whose prior offense was not against a child victim.
Maralan was charged Sept. 16, 2011, with sexually assaulting an additional four women in a Laguna Beach rug store after they came forward as a result of media coverage of four prior sexual assaults. To read the full press release, please visit www.orangecountyda.com and select the Sept. 16, 2011, press release titled, “Sex Offender Charged with Sexually Assaulting Four Additional Victims after Women Came Forward as a Result of Media Coverage of Four Prior Incidents,” under Press Releases/Media Advisories.
The online version of the press release reflects the corrected information that Maralan is allowed to enter Irvine City parks.
