Lawmakers Ask Citizens to Speak Out Against Placement of Sexually Violent Predator in Marysville

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber), former Chairman of the Board of Prison Terms and helped draft Marsy’s Law and the Sexually Violent Predator Act, and Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Plumas Lake) opposed the placement of Sexually Violent Predator Fraisure Earl Smith in Marysville and sent the attached letter to the courts.

Their objection to this individual’s placement is due to the fact that has no personal or professional connection to this community. In addition, under the California’s Welfare and Institutions Code Section 6600, Smith’s diagnosis suggests he is likely to commit again.

Senator Nielsen and Assemblyman Gallagher joins Yuba County Sheriff Steven L. Durfor, District Attorney Patrick McGrath and community members to oppose Smith’s placement in the North State.
