OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Oxnard officials say they'll remove a longtime sex offender who's been convicted seven times from his job on the city's Senior Services Commission.
The Ventura County Star reports Tuesday's unanimous vote comes after 68-year-old William Preston Davis was arrested last month and charged with having sex with a child under age 11 and other crimes.
Davis has been a registered sex offender since 1967, and has been convicted of seven sex offenses in California.
He had served in the volunteer commission post since 2009.
Oxnard does not require city commission appointees to undergo a criminal background check, but does screen prospective employees and volunteers who work with children.
City officials say they are now considering changing that to ask potential employees if they have criminal records.
