News sources are citing the fact that today the Escondido P.D. will hold a press conference at 3:30 here in California to go over 'more details' in the Amber Dubois story. Come back to the Left Coast Rebel for live coverage (live blog) of that Escondido police press conference. Details are not known at this time but perhaps we will get a better idea of (any) possible involvement with John Gardner and perhaps what the community can do to help in the search for the perpetrator in Amber Dubois' death.
"America's Newsroom" on FNC this morning gave airtime to a Criminal Defense attorney that simply reiterated that sex-offenders in the state of California are simply 'not given the proper rehabilitation' and such. She claimed that 'rehabilitation' was to blame in Chelsea King's murder and the possible connection of John Gardner to Amber Dubois' murder as well. I assume this attorney would be singing a different tune had it been her daughter that was raped or killed.
Amber Dubois' father told Fox News on March 5 that 'if Gardner had not been released' that Chelsea King would still be alive today and perhaps his daughter would be too. Despite what the criminal element of defense attorneys (who care more about sex offender's 'rights' than the victims) and 'rehabilitation' of those that cannot be rehabilitated, I believe this to be true. Here's a refresher course on just how the California justice system failed Chelsea King and perhaps Amber Dubois (if it is proven that John Gardner was involved):
- John Gardner was put away for assaulting and accosting a 13 year old girl in 2000. The psychiatrist in the case suggested that John Gardner be put away for at least 11 years.
- Judge Peter Deda allowed for the early release of John Gardner, citing the fact that 'it was John Gardner's first offense', apparently ignoring the pleas of the psychiatrist that claimed that John Gardner offered no remorse and would likely repeat his crimes.
- Judge Peter Deddeh ignored the advice of the court psychiatrist. Go here to file a complaint to remove Judge Peter Deddeh.
- John Gardner was released in 2005 and listed as a registered sex offender but then resided with his mother instead of the Lake Elsinore address provided.
