Jesse Stahl – Repeat Sex Offender

“25% of sex offenders re-offend within 15 years”
…..says Sarah Tofte

A Yakima man pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to having hundreds of child pornography images on his computer.

Police found the photos when they searched Jesse Stahl’s home more than year ago.

Detectives had arrested him on allegations he repeatedly raped a girl with a mental disability then looked through another alleged victim’s window as she undressed.

“It’s just disgusting to know that people have the mentality…to go after innocent children,” said Jackie Frey who worked across Stahl.

He’s labeled as a level three sex offender, which means the state believes he’s likely to offend again.

Before his most recent arrest Stahl admitted to police he exposed himself more than a dozen times to groups of young girls. He’s also been charged with child molestation, child rape and voyeurism.

“I have grandkids coming in and out of here,” said Daniel Enriques, who said his grandchildren stopped coming to his home when his children found out he lived next door to a convicted sex offender. “They didn’t want to bring their kids anymore.”

But Enriques may not need to worry, at least for 15 years. That’s how much time Stahl faces for the child porn case.

Stahl is expected to get sentenced this summer.

“He should be put away for as long as possible,” Frey said.
