Los Gatos Sex Offenders Online

Want to know where these criminals live in your neighborhood?

Ever wonder if your neighbors are secretly not so friendly?

The sex offender registry is public record, and new neighbors are legally supposed to announce themselves as sex offenders if they've been convicted. But that transparency can be hard to come by — unless you know about CrimeReports.com, or the California Attorney General's Megan's Law website.

The websites are a great resource for local crime data and information on registered sex offenders in California.

The public and police departments use them to show the community where crimes are taking place and where offenders live and their identities.

But even in places outside local police departments' jurisdictions, the websites have mapped the addresses, names and photos of sex offenders in the entire country. 

The criminals are marked on the CrimeReports.com map with red triangles. Orange triangles symbolize two sex offenders living at one address. Click on the triangles to see details on the offenders. 

In Los Gatos, the Megan's Law website shows a total of 25 sex offenders, nine in the 95030 zip code, seven in the 95032 zip code and nine in the 95033 zip code. None are shown in Monte Sereno.

The offenders in the 95033 zip code live in unincorporated Santa Clara County, or unincorporated Santa Cruz County, with a Los Gatos mailing address, so not within Town of Los Gatos boundaries.

Do you worry about your neighbors? Are you surprised to see how many sex offenders are in Los Gatos? Did you think there would be more? Tell us in the comments!

Editor's Note: This story has been revised. Its original version failed to include sex offenders residing in the 95033 zip code. That information has now been added.

From personal experience, and in my opinion, sex offenders don't deserve to live, let alone live among decent people. They should all be banished to an island in the middle of an ocean, with no possibility of EVER reaching a mainland. Let them prey on each other since that's ALL they will ever deserve!

The following current or recent Los Gatos clergy of the Jesuit Order have been linked to alleged sex abuse but may not be registered sex offenders. Sacred Heart Jesuit Center 300 College Ave Los Gatos, CA 95030 Just past the winery on the same side road. “Volunteers age 21 and older are welcome to volunteer at the center and act as companions for the residents.” Fr. Jerold Lindner, 68 and Br. William Farrington, 72 Certain alumni at Jesuit High, Sacramento and Bellarmine Prep, San Jose received 2012 letters about Br. William Farrington’s alleged abuse. A 2012 letter also went to 20,000 alums of Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, regarding Br. Farrington. Farrington lives at the Jesuit Los Gatos, California facility where Fr. Jerold Lindner also has a room. The Jesuit Order paid $3 million to settle sex abuse lawsuits against Fr. Lindner. Lindner worked for 15-years at Loyola High, Los Angeles. Fr. Carlton Whitten, 81 Law enforcement officials reported that a visiting Jesuit priest on assignment to St. Joseph Catholic Church in White Salmon is under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct. The visiting priest was Carlton Whitten, of Los Gatos, Calif. The investigation was related to alleged adult pornography on a parish computer, and the alleged inappropriate touching of a 17-year-old boy. Jan. 2, 2008.

From the newly released priest abuser documents from the Los Angeles archdiocese (alleged abusers), there is a Jesuit by the same name of Fr. William Wood, who lives at the Los Gatos, California facility (next to the winery) for Jesuits accused of sex crimes.
