Jack McClellan, the self-labeled pedophile who was hounded out of Southern California last month, has eluded criminal prosecution, but he has not been able to shake off the public's watchful eye. A nationwide web of bloggers who have been tracking his movements told police this week that McClellan had moved to the Portland, Ore., area. The 45-year-old is a native of Arlington, Wash.

A self-proclaimed pedophile was ordered Friday to stay at least 10 yards from any child in the state by a judge who extended a temporary restraining order for three years. Jack McClellan, 45, must stay away from areas where children are found, including parks, playgrounds and schools. Friday's hearing was to determine the future of the temporary order, issued Aug. 3 by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Melvin Sandvig in Chatsworth.

Self-proclaimed pedophile Jack McClellan was released from custody Tuesday after the Los Angeles city attorney's office determined that the restraining order he was arrested for allegedly violating was defective and dismissed its criminal case against him. The decision represents a major blow to parents groups that for months have tried to get police to keep McClellan away from children even though law enforcement officers say he is not breaking the law.

Self-proclaimed pedophile Jack McClellan was arrested this week for allegedly violating a judge's restraining order intended to protect children and put their parents at ease. But within hours, he was back on the street and in front of the television cameras. McClellan was then arrested again for the same offense and is now being held on $150,000 bail. But keeping McClellan behind bars may prove more difficult, legal experts said.

Self-proclaimed pedophile Jack McClellan was arrested at UCLA twice Monday, first in the afternoon outside a child development building on suspicion of violating a statewide restraining order prohibiting him from coming within 10 yards of any child in California. He was detained again about 10:20 p.m. after UCLA police saw McClellan, 45, being interviewed on a TV newscast while standing in a campus parking lot. A university spokesperson said McClellan was booked for trespassing.
OPINION
August 10, 2007
Ordinarily, men with Jack McClellan's proclivities come to the public's attention when their crimes are exposed. Then our fear, our anger and our sympathies are specific to perpetrator and victim. But in an age when we are inundated with revelations of child sexual abuse, McClellan, a self-described pedophile, has generated a new category of creep.

In a surprising move, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge on Friday granted a sweeping temporary restraining order barring self-proclaimed pedophile Jack McClellan from coming within 10 yards of any child in California. Judge Melvin Sandvig's order specifically prohibits McClellan from following, stalking, hitting or loitering around any minor. He also cannot contact or photograph a child or post on the Internet pictures or video of a minor without parental consent. "Victory!"

Jack McClellan publicizes his attraction to young girls, does the rounds of television news and talk shows, and cooperates with the police. When Santa Monica police confronted him last week at a Jack in the Box -- after he had been spotted in the children's section of the city's main library by a nervous mother who called police -- he agreed to let officers photograph him.

More than a week after the girl was taken, Terapon Dang Adhahn, 42, led investigators to the body of Zina Linnik in rural Pierce County, and his DNA was found on her, according to the charging documents.

Officials here and in Brazil pledged Friday to accelerate the return to Chile of a notorious child pornography ringleader who was arrested last week in Brazil. The convicted pedophile, Rafael Maureira, 46, widely referred to by the pseudonym Zakarach, fled from a Santiago halfway house in March, causing a furor and triggering an international manhunt.
