And lock him up for life.
What should the sign be changed to this time?
Tom Pollacci set to be released from Valley State Prison next week at the end of his 14-year sentence, the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office will ask a judge at a June 11 hearing to designate Pollacci as a sexually violent predator and order him to be committed to a state mental hospital.

But there are movements to keep him locked up.
Tom Pollacci, who was convicted of forcible rape
in two cases and accused of several other sexual attacks is
set to be released from Valley State Prison June 13, one of
his victims learned last week.
But he could end up being committed to a state hospital
if the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office tries to

Pollacci was accused of raping a woman in the loft of
his family’s Pacific Grove liquor store in April 2008 and
convicted by a jury of the crime in 2010. After two more
victims came forward, he was charged with three more
rape counts and was set to go to another trial, but he pleaded guilty to one rape in July 2011 to avoid going before a jury in a case that was set to include several other alleged victims testifying against him and a prosecutor who wanted to seek a life sentence.
