The paroled “Bolder Than Most” rapist from the 1980s is recommended for release in Jacumba Hot Springs at a placement hearing on Friday, Oct. 12.

Alvin R. Quarles, now 56, has served 25 years of his 50-year prison term imposed in 1989, and since 2013, he has been confined at a state psychiatric facility.

Quarles has been declared a sexually violent predator (SVP) which is why he is still being held. He was sentenced under a former law in which he only had to serve half of his prison term, but the law has since changed.

Alvin R. Quarles, now 56, has served 25 years of his 50-year prison term imposed in 1989, and since 2013, he has been confined at a state psychiatric facility.

Quarles has been declared a sexually violent predator (SVP) which is why he is still being held. He was sentenced under a former law in which he only had to serve half of his prison term, but the law has since changed.

San Diego Superior Court Judge David Gill will conduct the Oct. 12 hearing.

The District Attorney’s office strongly opposed the release of Quarles, who was nicknamed the “Bolder Than Most” rapist because he sexually assaulted women at knifepoint while their boyfriends or husbands were asleep in the residence.

Quarles pleaded guilty to four counts of rape as well as six counts of residential burglary and two robberies. The DA’s office said there were 14 different adult victims.

The DA’s office says he was diagnosed with sexual sadism disorder, voyeuristic disorder,and an antisocial personality disorder. He first petitioned to be released in 2016.

If Quarles is released, he will be under supervision by CONREP, the Conditional Release Program, which is operated by Liberty Healthcare Corporation since 2003.

Liberty hires security guards to be present with every released sex offender to accompany him on all errands and are present most of the time at the residence.

The population of Jacumba Hot Springs in 2010 was 561 residents. The area is patrolled by sheriff’s deputies assigned to the Boulevard/Jacumba substation.

Man who stabs wife gets eight years

An 8-year prison term was handed down to Travis Sterling Haddix, 27, who stabbed his wife in the parking lot of a Santee restaurant in 2017.

Haddix pleaded guilty to attempted murder of Heather Haddix, 25, who was stabbed four times on Nov. 20, 2017, in the parking lot of the Olive Garden restaurant at 9800 Mission Gorge Road.

Haddix was given credit of 10 months in jail Sept. 11 by El Cajon Superior Court Judge Robert Amador.

The couple met at the restaurant to discuss matters about their separation and child custody when Travis Haddix stabbed his wife twice in the torso, once in the neck, and once in the hand.

Haddix could have receive a maximum 15-year term, but the judge indicated to Haddix he would be receiving eight years at the time of his guilty plea.

Sentence given to man who stole ex’s car

Randy Lee Hanks, 38, has been sentenced to eight years and eight months in state prison for recklessly evading a sheriff’s deputy while Hanks was driving his ex-girlfriend’s stolen car.

The sheriff’s ASTREA 3 helicopter followed Hanks as he drove recklessly through Santee, El Cajon and La Mesa on July 19, 2017, starting at 11:30 p.m.

Hanks, of El Cajon, pleaded guilty to felony evading, auto theft and resisting an executive officer in El Cajon Superior Court. He received credit for about 13 months in jail.

Hanks drove at high speeds, ran red lights, and passed vehicles on the wrong side of the road. A deputy tried to conduct a traffic enforcement stop in Santee but a pursuit was terminated due to Hanks’ reckless driving, according to the sheriff’s department.

The ASTREA crew saw Hanks enter a parking structure at 8665 La Mesa Boulevard. La Mesa Police officers responded.

They found Hanks hiding in the laundry room of a nearby apartment complex at 8694 Lemon Grove. He was arrested and found to be the sole driver of the car he had stolen from his ex-girlfriend, said Deputy District Attorney Carlos Campbell.

After he pleaded guilty to three charges, other charges involving burglary of his ex-girlfriend’s apartment in Spring Valley were dismissed.

Hanks has prior convictions for robbery, auto theft and receiving stolen property.
