Paroled Sex Offender at New Address in Ventura

August 04, 2004|From a Times Staff Writer

A sex offender recently paroled to Ventura has moved to another neighborhood, police announced this week.

James Richard Perkins, 43, was moved by the state parole office to the 1600 block of East Thompson Boulevard, Police Lt. Doug Auldridge said. Perkins had been living in the 100 block of West Harrison Street, he said.

The reason for the move was unclear, Auldridge said. Parole officials could not be reached for comment.

Perkins is classified as a "high-risk" sex offender by the Department of Justice. He was convicted in Northern California in two cases involving kidnapping, assault to commit rape, rape and sexual penetration with a foreign object and served about 20 years in prison, Auldridge said.

State law requires paroled sex offenders to register with police, who may publicize their names and addresses, he said.
