Convicted Boulder rapist Christopher Lawyer’s arrest in California was for reportedly missing his curfew, but the Colorado Department of Corrections said it is likely such an infraction would not require him to return to Colorado.
Lawyer, 42, was arrested Monday by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Team on suspicion of a parole violation, and is being held at the Sacramento County Jail.
Officials at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, which is now overseeing Lawyer’s parole, said they did not know yet when or where Lawyer’s next hearing would take place.
But Mark Fairbairn with the Colorado Department of Corrections said that

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A neuropsychologist has told jurors that a man convicted of abducting an 8-year-old girl from a Florida Wal-mart and then raping and murdering her is most certainly a psychopath.
The Florida Times-Union reports Joseph Sesta, who has worked extensively with violent sexual predators, testified in a Jacksonville courtroom Wednesday in the penalty phase for 62-year-old Donald Smith.
Jurors took less than 15 minutes last week to convict Smith of the 2013 death of Cherish Perrywinkle. The jurors returned this week to decide whether Smith should be executed or spend the rest of his life in prison.
Sesta and other experts called by the defence all said Smith’s brain is far from normal and he lacks control over his impulses. He also was described as callous, uncaring, manipulative and lacking empathy.

Christopher Lawyer, a convicted rapist out of Boulder, has been arrested in California on a parole violation about half a year after the court-designated “sexually violent predator” moved to the state.
Lawyer’s name also recently popped up in an investigation involving a Sacramento woman who went missing and whose body was found eaten by a mountain lion, though it does not appear his arrest is related to that case.
Lawyer, 42, was booked into the Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of a parole violation on Monday, according to court records. Officials with the Colorado Department of Corrections and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s

When he finally got out of jail last August, he moved in to a friend’s apartment in West St. Paul. Three days later, police told his landlord that Evenstad couldn’t stay, threatening them both with criminal charges if he didn’t vacate.
That’s because West St. Paul doesn’t allow sex offenders to live with 1,200 feet of any school, daycare, or group home. Those restrictions cover about 95 percent of the residential area of the city. The rest of the available units either don’t rent to felons or are way too expensive for Evenstad.
So he sued, alleging that West St. Paul’s ordinance was thinly veiled “banishment” — a punishment on top of the punishment he’d already served.
“The ordinance was ostensibly aimed at protecting children, but they’ve applied it to people who never committed an offense against a child, like Tom,” said Chicago civil rights attorney Adele Nicholas. “We also objected to the

The convicted rapist – who has name suppression – was one of the last men to see the victim before she was taken off an inner-city Auckland street and driven 25 kilometres west to a quarry in Riverhead.
Sometime later she came around to find a man standing over her wearing a white mask and wielding a baseball bat as he made demands of her.
The Crown says the attacker was not the convicted rapist but Colin Jack Mitchell, who is on trial at the High Court in Auckland where he’s denied charges of kidnapping, causing grievous bodily harm and assaulting a woman with intent to sexually violate her.
The convicted rapist told the court he went to see the Gay Pride Parade in Ponsonby and afterwards met the

A man who was recently re-elected as fire chief in a Pennsylvania town resigned after it emerged that he had been convicted of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl.
Robert Gilbert Jr. resigned as fire chief of the Spartansburg Fire Department after public outrage, with Gilbert saying he didn’t want the department to be attacked.
“My family and our community are being attacked. I didn’t want that to continue. All I have done for 18 years is good things. But outsiders are tearing us up. I felt the best thing to do was back away,” he told JET 24.
Gilbert Jr. has worked with the department for 25 years, starting as a volunteer and working his way up before becoming chief a year ago.
He said he has changed since his conviction, adding, ” It seems you can never do wrong and do good again.”
The outrage started after The Corry Journal began reporting
