“Light the Night Against Crime” to focus on sex offenders

Every year, Crime Stoppers sponsors a campaign called “Light the Night Against Crime.” This year, that includes a focus on sex offenders. On Monday, Crime Stoppers kicked off a week-long push to get 50 fugitive sex offenders off the streets.

It's as simple as logging on to www.sdcrimestoppers.com. The names and faces of ten wanted sex offenders will immediately stare back at you. Each day this week, there'll be ten more.

Every day, Crime Stoppers will also highlight 2 of the 10, the ones law enforcement agencies really want behind bars.

Monday's featured thugs are Richard Wallace and Michael Anthony Marquez. Wallace was convicted of sexual battery and is not in compliance with parole. Marquez has committed a sexual assault and a rape. He did his time, but is also currently not in compliance with parole.

As always, with an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers you can earn up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
