(LifeSiteNews) — According to the UK’s Daily Mail, thousands of child abusers in California are being freed from prison just months after being locked up. Over 7,000 sex offenders imprisoned for “lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age,” for example, stayed behind bars for less than a year. Some of those freed in record time were guilty of raping children. This data—obtained from California’s Megan’s Law database—has been dubbed “terrifying and shameful” by criminal prosecutors who work hard putting sex offenders behind bars, with one LA prosecutor telling the Mail that the criminals being released are “frightening for society.”
According to the Daily Mail:
Others who committed some of the worst child sex crimes on the statute books served similarly short sentences, including 365 pedophiles convicted of continuous sexual abuse of a child who spent less than 12 months in prison, 39 cases of sodomy with a child under 16, and three cases of kidnapping a child under 14 ‘with intent to commit lewd or lascivious acts’, according to the data.
This is particularly worrisome because, as one prosecutor noted, the data “clearly show that pedophiles don’t get reformed. They’re going to come out and they’re going to commit again. Letting these people out early, we’re allowing for a lot more victimization. And that’s terrifying.” Sex offender Carlos Alexander Nahue, for example, pled “no contest” in January 2015 and was sentenced to a mere two days in the Los Angeles country jail (and five years probation)—he now lives three blocks from the Reseda Elementary School and a block from a daycare.

A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.
Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.
Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.
Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.
Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.
Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:
- No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
- No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
- No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.
This is not education. This is propaganda.
Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.
SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!

The Mail included other examples, as well. Noah Holt was convicted of indecent exposure, child porn possession, and “lewd acts with an under-14-year-old”—and spent less than a year in jail. Gualterio Lopez Contreres was charged with “sodomy by use of force and sexual penetration by force” and was out in less than two. It is no surprise, then, that the California Department of Justice not only declined to provide any data to the Mail, but actually made the data on their website deliberately more difficult to examine in 2019 by removing the search function. The number of sex offenders has risen to 61,770—a rise of 12% since 2019.
According to a spokesperson for the California Department of Justice:
Public safety is a top priority for the California Department of Justice. It’s generally up to courts — in conjunction with locally elected DAs — to ensure the applicable statutes and sentencing guidelines are applied to cases based on the specific facts and circumstances. It’s largely up to legislators to enact those statutes. Our office actively works with law enforcement across the state to protect our state’s children and families, whether that’s through conducting sting operations targeting sexual predators, issuing guidance to reduce harm to sexually exploited youth, or launching Human Trafficking and Sexual Predator Apprehension Teams. Our state’s 58 district attorneys are on the front lines of enforcing criminal statutes to protect public safety on behalf of California’s nearly 40 million residents. Our office always stands ready to provide assistance, guidance, or oversight as necessary.
But it is potentially significant that California’s laws concerning sex offenders have been loosened in recent years. California’s worst legislator, state Senator Scott Wiener, has been front and center on this file. You may recognize his name—Wiener is an LGBT activist from San Francisco who recently proposed on Twitter that California should offer “Drag Queen 101 as part of the K-12 curriculum. Attending Drag Queen Story Time will satisfy the requirement.”
Recent laws championed by Wiener include a 2017 bill to reduce the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection — previously a felony — to misdemeanour status. This change in law also applied to HIV-positive people who donate blood without informing the blood bank of their status. In 2020, Wiener sponsored another bill—signed by Governor Gavin Newsom — requiring California to imprison men who identify as women in female prisons. The view of the women locked up with these usually violent criminals is of no account to dangerous ideologues like Wiener, of course.
If you want an idea of what Wiener does find dangerous, he also co-authored a bill that could require prison time for healthcare workers declining a “preferred name or pronouns.” Wiener believes that it should not be a crime to have sex with someone without telling him that you are HIV-positive, but jail-time is appropriate for those who refuse to refer to a male as a female at his request.

It gets worse. Wiener proposed SB 145 in 2019 –signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in 2020 – that permits “judge’s discretion over sex-offender registration in all cases involving voluntary intercourse between teenagers 14 to 17, who cannot legally consent, and adults who are less than ten years older.” Wiener worked to decriminalize homosexual intercourse between adults and minors in certain cases, claiming that California’s current laws discriminate against the LGBT community. In short, he worked to help statutory rapists avoid the sex offender registry list. According to the bill:
This bill would exempt from mandatory registration under the act a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register.
According to Wiener, this bill was a victory for LGBT equality—not going lax on sex offenders. I think Wiener’s record—and the results—speak for themselves.
