1853 - Sarah Gifford, community leader and wife of Newhall's first railroad station agent, born in England [story]


As a service to the public, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced  Friday an updated Megan’s Law listing for sex offenders in California.

“Every so often, they put it out so more people are aware that it’s there,” said Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau in Downtown Los Angeles. “Although we think most people know about it, a lot of people may not realize that it’s out there.”

The Megan’s Law website allows for a search of sex offenders by zip code.

SCV Sheriff’s deputies help maintain the database by conducting address verifications.

“Locally, the Crime Prevention Unit zone leaders are responsible for conducting address-verification checks regularly,” said Sheriff’s Station Deputy Josh Dubin.

Under California law, there are two levels of sex offenders: those who are considered higher risk, or “Full Address” registrants, and those who must register, but do not have to submit their address, for offenders who are not deemed “high risk.”

Here in the Santa Clarita Valley, the numbers per zip code, are as follows (the zip codes are listed in numerical order): 91321, There are 18 “Full Address,” or FA, registrants, and 23 total offenders; 91350, there are 9 FA registrants, and 11 total offenders; there are 17 FA registrants, and 23 total offenders; 91354, there are 5 FA registrants, and 6 total offenders; 91355, there are 4 FA registrants, and 5 total offenders; 91381, had 0 listings; 91384, there are 10 FA registrants, and 11 total offenders; 91387, there are 5 FA registrants, and 8 total offenders; 91390, there are 5 FA registrants and 7 total offenders; and in the 93510 zip code, there are 8 FA registrants, and 10 total offenders.

Every state has its own version of Megan’s Law and requirements for sex-offender registry.

Since 2004, the public has been able to view information on sex offenders required to register with local law enforcement under California’s Megan’s Law.

“I don’t live in a relatively low-income area, but I looked at it, and I was like, ‘Oh my goodness,’” Saldana said. “(Megan’s Law violators) come from all walks of life — that’s all I can say.”

    In the sentence that lists the numbers of offenders in each zip code it looks like there’s a zip code missing between 91350 and 91354. Thank you for the story.
