The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office announced Monday that Tibor Karsai was released from Coalinga State Hospital and will register with the Sheriff's Office as a "Transient" Sex Offender.
The Sheriff's Office said Karsai will be living in a motor home in remote locations of northern Santa Barbara County. He will wear a GPS device and will be monitored by Liberty Healthcare, a contractor of the State of California Dept. of Mental Health.
The Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office filed several legal challenges to try to stop Karsai's release into the community, but in March, the State Supreme Court determined he would be released as a transient into the county.
Karsai was convicted of sexually assaulting a young woman in 1975. In 1980, he was convicted of assaulting a 16-year old girl.
