Robin Sax: How to Stop a Sex Offender? Chelsea King Murder Should Never Have Happened
LOS ANGELES (CBS) Now that convicted sex offender John Albert Gardner III has been charged with murdering 17-year-old Chelsea King we are again asking “How could this happen?”
How could a man who admitted he molested a 13-year-old girl in 2000 serve only five years in jail when he could have served 30? How could he wind up living yards away from an elementary school?
Just two years ago Gardner’s electronic monitoring bracelet came off and already a 23-year-old jogger says he attacked her, and prosecutors say he raped and murdered King and might be linked to the disappearance of 14-year-old Amber Dubois.
