San Francisco officials asked the state Supreme Court to reverse a state appeals court ruling allowing the Department of Corrections to place paroled rapist Lawrence Singleton where it pleases. Corrections officials say they have not decided where to place Singleton. City Atty. Louise Renne nonetheless asked the high court for an emergency stay barring authorities from placing him in San Francisco until the appeal is decided. The city appealed Friday's court of appeal ruling that counties cannot bar Singleton from being paroled to their locales. Singleton served eight years for raping a teen-age hitchhiker and chopping off her forearms.
