Sexually Violent Predator May Be Coming to Sacramento! 

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert is alerting the community of a Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) that may be placed in Sacramento’s Del Paso Heights neighborhood.

A hearing is scheduled for public comment on the release of SVP, Dariel Morrise Shazier.  A Santa Clara judge will consider placing Shazier at an address in Del Paso Heights even though Shazier has NO TIES to Sacramento.

August 26, 2019, starting at 9:00 a.m.
Santa Clara Superior Court, Hall of Justice – Department 32
191 N. First Street, San Jose CA 95113

Shazier was convicted in Santa Clara County in 1989 and 1994 in multiple cases of:

  • Sodomy of a Person Under 14 by Force
  • Annoy/Molest a Child
  • Sexual Battery
  • Sodomy of a Drugged Victim (Under 18)
  • Oral Copulation of a Drugged Victim (Under 18)

After serving his 17-year sentence, a jury determined Shazier to be a Sexually Violent Predator under the Welfare and Institutions Code §6604.

If approved, Shazier will live in Del Paso Heights and only be monitored for one year.  He would then be eligible for full release from supervision to live unmonitored in the community.

If community members want to voice their opposition, notify the Sacramento County DA’s Office to:

o  Be heard in person at the hearing being held at the Santa Clara County Hall of Justice

o  Be heard by teleconference call at the Greater Sacramento Urban League (3725 Marysville Blvd., Sacramento CA 95838)

o  Submit a letter or message by email to:

o  Mail a letter to: District Attorney’s Office, ATTN: SVP Shazier, 901 G Street, Sacramento CA 95814

Shazier is the first of three out-of-county Sexually Violent Predators the Department of State Hospitals has notified us about that they intend to place in Sacramento County.
