FRESNO, California - A sexually violent predator has been released and is now living in Fresno County, the Fresno County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.
Michael Fellows, 69, was released on Oct. 31 from Coalinga State Hospital without any conditions -- meaning he is free to live where he wants as long as it does not violate existing sex offender laws.
Fellows has registered as a sex offender through the Sheriff’s Office. He is also currently listed on California’s Megan’s Law Website www.meganslaw.ca.gov.
Fellows has a history of entering and hiding in women’s public restrooms, the Sheriff's Office said. Once inside, he would target women and girls, exposing himself and forcing himself upon them.
None of the crimes Fellows has been convicted of were committed in Fresno County, the Sheriff's Office said.
