DA Moves To Send OC Rapist To Mental Institution

SANTA ANA (CBS) — Orange County prosecutors want to put a convicted rapist behind bars for good.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports Lawrence Brown will be brought from Chino prison to a Santa Ana courtroom on Friday for a civil trial.

Brown was briefly released on parole after serving 25 years for kidnapping and raping two young girls in 1983.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackaukus has filed a petition to keep Brown in a mental institution until he no longer poses a danger to the community.

Rackaukus says lawmakers in Sacramento are working on legislation to make sure other serial rapists are not released back into the community.

    lock him in a box and throw away the key. But, first let the victims’ families have 5 minutes alone with him in the box.

    Did not say whether he failed his rehab or not. I mean isn’t that why they go to jail to be rehabilitated?

    Sad after all these years we still do not have a workable system.
