SoCal Sex Offender Was Attending Santa Rosa Junior College Under False Name (PHOTO)
(BANT) – Police at Santa Rosa Junior College say a parolee and registered sex offender from Orange County was arrested on campus Monday where he was attending classes under an alias.
Daniel Jaebok Lee, 41, was wanted since October in Orange County for a felony violation of sex offender registration requirements. His past offenses include indecent exposure, child molestation, attempted lewd acts on a child under 14 and assault with intent to commit rape.
Campus police became aware of Lee because of reported unusual behavior in one of his classes, police said.
“There were quality of life medical issues. He was reported to be despondent in class,” Lt. Robert Brownlee said.
Police learned Lee was using an alias to attend the college as a student, failed to register as a sex offender and illegally fled Orange County where he was on parole, Brownlee said.
After a week’s investigation, Lee was arrested outside a class at Emeritus Hall late Monday morning. He was booked in the Sonoma County Jail and will be extradited to Orange County.
