Frustrated Orange County authorities, unable to stop Wednesdays release of a man who raped 7- and 8-year-old girls in the early 1980s, warned Tustin and Santa Ana residents today and vowed to push for laws to make it harder for sexually violent predators to get paroled.
Lawrence Joseph Brown, 52, who was convicted in 1985 of sexually assaulting two young girls, is scheduled to be released from Chino State Prison Wednesday.
Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas held a news conference with Santa Ana police Chief Paul Walters, Tustin police Chief Scott Jordan and Sen. Lou Correa, D-Santa Ana, to warn residents of Tustin and Santa Ana where Brown may live.
They also criticized the state Department of Mental Health for not working with authorities to declare Brown a sexually violent predator. That designation would send Brown to a state mental institution, where he could be held indefinitely.
A jury found Brown guilty Feb. 15, 1985, of two felony counts of kidnapping and five felony counts of forcible sex crimes against a child. He was sentenced to 49 years in prison. After serving 25 years of the sentence, Brown was eligible for parole and was released from prison April 27 to May 6, but was returned to prison for failing to charge a GPS device, Rackauckas said.
While Brown was free, he lived with his girlfriend at 13071 Red Hill Ave. in Tustin about 350 yards from a school, Rackauckas said.

If you have a strong stomach, you can read the specifics of what this vile evil creep has done at the link.
If this monster doesn't meet the criteria for a violent sexual predator, who does?
I thought that now, there are laws that keep him in jail indefinitely if he is still deemed a danger?
Now that sex offender registries are filled to the brim with people who aren't violent sexual predators, guys like Brown should have no trouble slipping through the cracks.
But they wouldn't.
California is safe, thanks to virtually no CCW permits being issued. What is wrong with this picture?
Get ready, he’ll write a ‘how to’ book and sell it on Amazon.
Relax, the Lawrence Joseph Brown is now back in state prison....
