SAN DIEGO — The Department of State Hospitals Wednesday proposed placement in Jacumba Hot Springs for a sexually violent predator who’s been ordered released into the community for outpatient treatment.

Ural Davis, 49, was sentenced to 27 years in prison in 1993 after being convicted between 1984 and 1992 of sexually assaulting women in three separate cases.

In 2009, Davis was found to be a sexually violent predator and was ordered to undergo treatment at a state hospital.

In August 2014, Davis requested that a court find him suitable for outpatient treatment. After a trial last month, a judge granted Davis’ request.

San Diego County Supervisor Dianne Jacobs vowed to fight to keep Davis from being placed in a community she represents.

“This serial predator is a sick man who belongs behind bars for his multiple felonies, including rape and kidnapping for sexual purposes. Dumping him in Jacumba Hot Springs is a terrible idea, and I will continue to fight the placement of these violent criminals in East County. Enough is enough,” Jacobs said.

The San Diego Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force will be accepting public comments starting Wednesday through Dec. 22 about Davis’ proposed placement leading up to a hearing in Superior Court on Jan. 22.

The comments will be forwarded to the Department of State Hospitals and to the court before next month’s hearing. Public comment will also be accepted at the hearing.
