Non-AB109 parolee’s attempted rape foiled

GoldStarLogoA former guest of the state is facing serious charges in an episode of backsliding.

Richard Henry Stine, 39, is currently in custody in LA County facing one count each of kidnapping to commit rape, assault with intent to commit rape, kidnapping to commit robbery and assault with intent to commit rape with a victim under 18.  He is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday and is being held pending a $2,001,000 bail.

Cops believe Stine crept up on his victim from behind as she walked down the street in Palmdale on August 2.  He shoved an object into her back,  which he said was a gun, and told her to keep walking or he would shoot her.  He forced her to walk behind a nearby church.  Fortunately for the victim someone saw this happen and called the local constabulary.

Stein has priors for kidnapping and rape from 1999.  He was released on parole in 2010 and has been arrested seven times since then on various parole violation charges, including both crimes and status offenses.

He could get life if he is convicted this time around.   Thanks to Caroline for the 411 on this.

    We can compare High Risk Sex Offender Parolee Stine CDC # P 46523 to that Stockton High Risk Sex offender Jerome Sidney De Avila. Both as a result of AB 109 have been ushered in and out of their counties jail system. Stein was arrested on 05-11-2013 and released this same date . No parole Hold. Bail set at $ 300.00. Arrested again on 05-24-2013. Received local jail sentences 2AV0356001. 60 days. 3AV0326601 .26 days. and 3AV0361401 .0 days. parole hold in place and received 45 days parole revocation time.. Released from LA. County Jail on 06-12-2013. Arrested once more on 06-25-2013 Parole hold in place and received 80 days. Released from local custody on 07-20-2013. Last arrested on 08-02-2013. Parole hold in place . Now if convicted on these new violent criminal charges he may never see the time of day again within the community. Jerome Sidney De Avila killed his own grandmother and his family has now filed a wrongful death law suit naming CDCR / DAPO and the county where the criminal offense took place. There may soon be yet another wrongful death law suit this time Los Angeles County.

      In all fairness to San Joaquin County they had a revolving door jail long before AB109.
