http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2003/01/05/MN83007.DTL I followed this story when it happened and I can't believe this guy only served 5 years! I thought he was still in jail for sure... Now, not only was he out, but the police didn't let anyone in the neighborhood know exactly who he was! "Parnell was deemed a "serious" offender, not a "high-risk" sexual predator under the law, said Berkeley police spokeswoman Mary Kusmiss" Just what the hell do you have to do to be a high-risk sexual predator? This guy has been at it since the '50's, was convicted in the 70's for stealing a kid and keeping him for 7 years! And some of his neighbors don't think the charges are warranted? He should have been shot years ago as far as I'm concerned.
