THERE ARE NO WORDS AT THIS POINT
Read Boulder police: ‘Sexually violent predator’ released into community from the Daily Camera. Copied below in its entirety:
Boulder police are notifying the public that a man deemed to be a “sexually violent predator” is being released into the community, according to a news release.
Rodney David Jobe, 48, is a transient who will be staying at the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless, 4869 N. Broadway Blvd.
Boulder police are releasing the information about Jobe under a state law that allows them to notify the public when a sexually violent predator is released in the community. Police said Jobe has been determined to present a high potential to commit further offenses.
Boulder District Court records indicate Jobe has a conviction for misdemeanor unlawful sexual contact. A failure to register as a sex offender charge was dismissed.
According to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, a sex offender must meet several criteria to gain the SVP designation: convictions for sexual assault, unlawful sexual contact and sexual assaults on children.
The victim in the case has to be a stranger to the perpetrator or someone the perpetrator established or promoted a relationship primarily for the purpose of sexual victimization.
The offender is assessed for “mental abnormality,” prior sexually based convictions and other risk factors, and the Colorado Department of Corrections or a court makes the SVP determination, according to CBI.
In an unrelated case, Kerry Whitfield, a man deemed to be a sexually violent predator was formally charged in Boulder County Court with four counts of sexual assault.
Boulder County prosecutors allege Whitfield sexually assaulted a woman in September after she bought heroin from him, and in another case, that he repeatedly sexually assaulted another woman who bought drugs from him.
As a sexually violent predator, Whitfield, who had completed his latest sentence, was registered in both Boulder — where he lived out of his van — and in Aurora, where he worked.
