District Attorney says Liberty Healthcare failed to keep terms of release for sexual predator
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A pedophile convicted of molesting four boys was arrested last week on another felony charge. But that sex offender is not in custody. Instead, Allen Fields is living in Campo being supervised by a program ran by Liberty Healthcare.
Liberty Healthcare is taxpayer funded and, according to the District Attorney, failed to keep the terms of Fields’ release.
The penal code states that sexually violent predators must register every 90 days with law enforcement, something Allen Fields agreed to under the terms of his release in 2014. He has successfully registered every 90 days for 6 years, until now.
Court records show fields was arrested and booked into jail for a felony charge. Three days later, the charges were not filed, and he was released under the supervision of Liberty Healthcare, a for-profit agency that monitors sex offenders.
According to the District Attorney, the failure to make his appointment to register as a sex offender was Liberty Healthcare’s error.
Fields’ crimes dates back to the early 1980s when he worked as a caregiver or Boy Scout troop leader to gain access to four boys between the ages of 10 and 13, carrying out lewd acts against them over five years.
He was convicted of multiple sex violations against minors in 1983. By 2000, he was released from prison and committed to a state hospital to undergo treatment.
Fields was then granted conditional release in 2014, which includes supervision from Liberty Healthcare.
