1839 - Gov. Juan B. Alvarado gives most of SCV to Mexican Army Lt. Antonio del Valle. [story]


The map above shows a list based on registrants with Megan’s Law. The entries are current as of Monday, Dec. 28.

[KHTS] – The Megan’s Law website has been updated and shows there are approximately 214 registered sex offenders living around the Santa Clarita Valley.

The information on the Megan’s Law site is made available solely to protect the public. Anyone who uses the information to commit a crime or to harass an offender or his or her family is subject to criminal prosecution and civil liability, according to the website.

“We want to be able to help the community protect themselves and their children,” said Shirley Miller, public information officer for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “Knowledge is power.”

Megan’s Law only discloses information on registered sex offenders under California law, according to the website.

Some listed may have subsequently relocated and some sex offenders are not subject to public disclosure under state law and are not included on the site.

In addition, state law does not allow offenses other than the crimes for which the convicted sex offender is required to register to be disclosed here, according to the website.

Below, Megan’s Law has provided a list of safety tips for parents, teenagers, one’s self and what residents can do to enhance community safety:

For Parents:
Inform children that it is wrong for adults to engage children in sexual activity.
Stress to your child that he or she should feel comfortable to say anything, especially if it involves another adult. If your child does not feel comfortable being completely honest, then another trusted adult should be found together so your child can talk to in confidence.
Make an effort to know the people with whom your children are spending time with.
Teach children about their bodies, give them the correct language to use when describing their private parts. Emphasize that those parts are private.
Make sure to know where your child is at all times. Know his or her friends and be clear about the places and homes they may visit.
Never leave children unattended in an automobile, whether it is running or not.
Be involved in your children’s activities.
Listen to your children, pay attention if they tell you they do not want to be with someone or go somewhere.
Notice when someone shows one or all of your children a great deal of attention or begins bringing them gifts.
Teach your children that they have the right to say “no” to any unwelcome, uncomfortable or confusing touch or actions by others.
Be sensitive to any changes in your children’s behavior or attitude. Encourage open communication and learn how to be an active listener.
Be sure to screen babysitters and caregivers.
Practice basic safety skills with your children.
Being available and taking time to listen to your children helps build feelings of safety and security.

For Teenagers:
Encourage teenagers to trust his or her instincts, and if a situation makes him or her uncomfortable or uneasy, to get out of it.
Stress to them that they can always talk to you if they have been hurt or scared, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the incident.

For One’s Self:
Trust your own instincts when you are with someone about whom you feel uncomfortable; for example, in an elevator, car or home.
Do not talk yourself out of feeling uncomfortable being alone with someone simply because he or she is an acquaintance or a friend of a friend. Most sexual abusers are someone the victim knows.
Be wary of friends or dates who test boundaries by making unwanted physical advances and then ignore or minimize protests and other signs that you do not like their behavior.

To Enhance Community Safety, Residents Can:
Talk openly about the sexual assault of adults and children, men, women, boys and girls.
Understand the issues involved in sexual assault.
Assume preventing sexual assault is everyone’s responsibility.
Increase knowledge about risk reduction measures that can be taken to protect one’s self.
Invite your local law enforcement, probation/ parole department, rape crisis center, or child abuse prevention organization to a neighborhood discussion group to learn about the issue and to process people’s emotions.
Get to know neighbors.
Organize neighborhood block watches, if desired by neighbors.
Find out what the statistics on child sexual abuse, adult sexual assault, offender arrest and incarceration are in your community.

  20. Gaby Ameri Gaby Ameri says:

    Esther Hernandez one up the street from our house 😠

  21. Daniel Leedy Daniel Leedy says:

    Then again being a sex offender is easy in CA. Harmless things can register you. I when you take out those people there aren’t so many balloons up there

    • I agree. People are quick to judge without knowing the circumstances.

    • Daniel Leedy Daniel Leedy says:

      That too!! I was going through some of the bubbles in Canyon Country and I see a lot of people in violation of PC 288 (a) which to my understanding reads as molestation of a child, under 14 years. Those were only a few though. Idk about the rest. I know one stupid way to be registered is if you are caught having sex in your car in public, even in an inconspicuous area and somebody happens to get offended you’re sol. Even harmless streaking at a football game or taking a harmless piss somewhere because when you gotta go, you gotta go. What’s nice about the above link is it tells you exactly what section they violated and a very brief rundown of it.

  22. Patty Ann Patty Ann says:

    SCV is not immune from crime, gangs, homelessness, sex offenders etc…. Why are some people so shocked?

  23. Daniella Fiallos Todd Costello WTH

  24. I checked a website, Lancaster has 840 last time I checked!

  25. Ckay Walker Ckay Walker says:

    Before you freak gain knowledge of how easy it is to be listed.

  26. Haley Dreyer Haley Dreyer says:

    Brittany Swanson Mike Swanson

  27. Valencia and Saugus is poppin off with sexual offenders.

  28. Kimmy Corzo Kimmy Corzo says:

    Becky Nelson Guevara

  29. ALWAYS be alert & SAY SOMETHING if you SEE SOMETHING…

  30. Joey Belmonte Rachel Belmonte just so you are aware! ❤️

  31. Lots in Lancaster also

  32. We still have more in Lancaster & Palmdale

  33. I Bought a home in a mobile home park and still paying for it but neither the park or the seller told me there is a sex offender in the park,was their responsibility to tell me ?

  34. I used to live in Burbank–there was literally one on every street!! And our landlord turned out to be a 2x convicted offender–which was never disclosed even though we has kids and his registered address was far away.

  35. Sandra says:

    As vigilant as we need to be as parents, we also need to be aware that the requirements to register are for non violent offenders as well. I personally know of one who was in a 3 yr high school relationship. When he turned 18, dad turned him in. Every sexual act was a count against him. He served time, and now has frequent sweeps of his home. The sheriffs often don’t know the circumstances either. He was put back in jail for having pictures of his high school friends in photo albums and other similar acts. So, sadly, this changed how I view the registry. Be aware. Teach your children. But know not every one in the list is a pedophile.

  36. To close for comfort ! Have a tight hold on ur babes!!

  37. Norma Ramirez😱😱😱 look in to it!!

  38. Growing up in svc I thought it was the best town to be in. I use to walk the streets and go my friends on foot. Crazy. I use to love my home town. Now im disgusted how people are Turing out there

  39. why r u ppl so shocked to find out sex offenders live in this place they live ANYWHERE I’m glad I don’t live in this dump anymore too expensive to live n ppl r so snobby lol

  40. Betty Arenson says:

    The replies to the sex offender list/Megan;s Law are very interesting. Some months ago State Senator Sharon Runner tried to get this issue more clarified via legislation and I wrote a commentary supporting her. Nearly 100% of the respondents/posts were how horrible Runner and I both were to suggest that such predators be forced to register to be “track-able”—-=we were the b ad guys, not the perverts. The above prior posts tell the opposite…how sad, scary (pick an adjective) that so many such “people” are indeed our neighbors. Hhmmm.

    • SCVNews.com says:

      If memory serves, most of those comments (some months ago) were from one of the deviants on the list, or his family member.

  41. A lot of these r people that had sex with a minor that probably lied about their age. But we still need to keep an eye out and keep our kids safe as much as possible.

  42. Maybe they should all offend each other instead since they are so close to one another and leave the children alone!
