District Attorney’s Office has filed a motion to reverse the decision to release Alvin Quarles
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The District Attorney’s office released a statement, asking the court to reconsider its decision to release Alvin Quarles. The motion will be argued in court on Friday morning.
“Alvin Quarles is a dangerous predator and the District Attorney’s Office will continue to use every legal avenue at its disposal to protect the community. Our office had been researching our options and today we filed a motion to have the judge reconsider releasing Quarles into the community. The motion will be argued in court on Friday morning. The District Attorney’s Office has strongly and repeatedly opposed the release of Mr. Quarles into the community based upon his prior crimes and the danger we believe he poses to the community. We’ve also opposed his release based on the fact that the doctor who conducted Mr. Quarles’ annual review, the director of Coalinga State Hospital, and the director of CONREP (conditional release program) were all three opposed to a finding that he could safely be treated in the community. In spite of our arguments, the court ultimately disagreed with our assessment and ruled that Mr. Quarles could safely be treated in the community. We are now asking the court to reconsider its decision to release Mr. Quarles into the community of Jacumba Hot Springs, as well as its decision to release Mr. Quarles from Coalinga State Hospital to be supervised in the public community. Our office is committed to protecting the public and working with individuals who were victimized by this defendant.”
