Judge Gill approves conditional release of SVP Michael Martinez to Borrego Springs

BORREGO SPRINGS (KUSI) – Judge David Gill has approved conditional releases of SVP Michael Martinez to Borrego Springs neighborhood, despite intense backlash from the community.

Judge Gill visited the home to see the location firsthand Thursday evening, and decided it was an adequate place for a violent criminal to live.

Supervisor Jim Desmond, released a statement saying “there are many reasons this community is not suitable, including the many kids that live nearby. Sexually Violent Predator Martinez’s horrific crimes should not allow him to live back in any San Diego County neighborhood.”

This is a developing story, KUSI will update when more information becomes available.
