Samuels' public, Megan's Law warning entry
Rapist Dougal Samuels has a beef with California and the U.S. Attorney General because he's not being deported to Jamaica.

Calling himself a member of a "politically unpopular group," Samuels (a.k.a. Samuals, he oddly uses both spellings) wants to leave as soon as possible, but officials here consider him so special they refuse to honor the wish.

The serial rapist (with victims in Chicago, Laguna Beach, Costa Mesa and Sunset Beach) already served an 18-year prison sentence before the Orange County District Attorney's Office managed to label him a sexually violent predator (SVP) for the savage beatings he employed before and during his sexual assaults of women he usually met at bars.

Dwayne Jordan Richardson was released after making his $100,000 bail.
A teenager has been arrested for doing what teenagers do: hook up with one another. The problem for Dwayne Jordan Richardson is that at 19 he's an adult, his alleged victims are two female high school students who are minors and as a high school basketball coach he's in a position of authority. On Wednesday, the Villa Park High School resource officer obtained information about alleged sexual misconduct by Richardson, a "walk-on" girls' basketball coach at the school but not a teacher there, according to Lt. Jeff Hallock, the Orange County sheriff's spokesman.

Sergeant Kathryn Hamel told the Orange County Register that the majority of victims are CSUF students. The accused serial groper is suspected of those crimes as well as others far from the college.
