Antoine Denell Jordan, 1980s Sex Monster Who Raped USC Women at Knifepoint, Moves Near Fullerton Colleges
Watch out, women of CSU Fullerton and Fullerton College (and anyone else who lives in the area, really).
Antoine Denell Jordan, the 50-year-old sex offender convicted in 1983 of multiple counts of violent rape on the USC campus -- including oral and anal rape, once of a girl under the age of 18 -- is loose on the streets of Fullerton. Police are alerting the community that he now lives at 1325 South Jefferson Avenue, only a few miles from Fullerton College and Cal State Fullerton.
Even more disconcerting, perhaps, is a photo album on Jordan's Facebook...
... of dozens of scantily clad girls at a roller rink. The album was posted in late June of this year. We hate to draw the comparison, but it's almost Grim Sleeper-esque.
[Update, 6:15 p.m.: It looks like Jordan has deleted his Facebook account. But we promise you, the roller-rink creeper pics were there. Photos of girls in crop tops, all smiling in a row like he told them to pose; weird zoomed-in ones of women with massive cleavage, etc. His MySpace still exists, but his only friend is Tom. Go figure.]
CBS LA reports that Jordan is a "high-risk sex offender" who "was convicted of kidnapping and sexually assaulting as many as nine women at knifepoint near the University of Southern California campus in the early 1980s."
Fullerton police Sergeant Steve Williams tells the LA Weekly that investigators are still trying to determine the status of Jordan's former victims. However, "it's my understanding that they were potentially USC students -- it happened on their campus."
Williams adds that "based on his charges, I think anyone can be concerned. One of the victims was under 18 at the time."
Though the sergeant says that police "cannot do anything about" the creepy Facebook photos, they are certainly a concern. He says that multiple "potential victims" have already notified police that they were contacted by Jordan via social media.
So how was a guy like this released back out into the public? According to Williams, Jordan was sentenced to 44 years in prison, but was released in 2005 after only 22 years behind bars. He cleared parole in 2009, but currently has "another criminal matter pending in Los Angeles" proper -- failure to register as a sex offender.
"It's a social issue versus a constitutional issue," says Williams. "I dont know anyone who wants to live by a sexual offender of any kind. [But] a person can virtually live where they want to once they've cleared their obligations with the prison system."
