Corona, CA: Registered sex offender arrested in Corona on felony charges

On Thursday, January 27, 2011, shortly after 7:00 AM, members of Riverside County’s multi-agency Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Task Force served a search warrant at a residence located in the 1000 block of Circle City Dr., Corona, following a several-months-long investigation into the activities of Corona-area registered sex offender Albert Stephenson, age 30. SAFE Task Force officers subsequently booked Stephenson at the Riverside County Sheriff’s Robert Presley Detention Center on felony charges related to his failure to properly register his address of residence with the Corona Police Department.

Lengthy investigation leading up to Stephenson’s arrest revealed his true Corona residence despite his having falsely registered a residential address in the City of Orange with the Orange Police Department.

The SAFE Task Force is comprised of law enforcement personnel from agencies spanning Riverside County, all focused on reducing incidents of sexual assault County-wide by means of comprehensive registered sex offender monitoring and enforcement. Inquiries regarding this incident can be referred to the SAFE Task Force Director, Commander Jose Rodriguez of the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office (Bureau of Investigation), at (951) 955-0057.
