County Supervisor Joel Anderson, whose district contains the Mount Helix neighborhood, praised the ruling.

“This is another great victory for our community,” Anderson said. “Speaking together, we have made our voices heard, and I want to again thank San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan for her hard work and for listening to us on this issue.

“There is still more work to do,” he said. “Over 60% of all SVPs have been placed in my district, which has more sexual offenders than any other district in San Diego County. We need to improve the process for notification and placement and there are accountability issues to further investigate.”
