AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for May 31, 2013


A man registering as a “former Sexually Violent Predator” or S-V-P is living in downtown San Diego near Horton Plaza and the Gaslamp Quarter. John Kreischer is classified as an S-V-P because of multiple counts of forcible rape in 1977, assault with intent to commit rape in 1981, two counts of kidnapping and attempted rape from 1988 and failing to register as a Sex Offender in 2009. He is living in the Plaza Hotel at 1037 4th Avenue in downtown San Diego. Kreischer is being watched by a G-P-S monitoring system, is in compliance with his registration requirements, and is not wanted by law enforcement at this time.

This morning at 9:00 Rashon Abernathy, Seandell Jones, and Shaquille Jordan will be sentenced for murdering a college student they lured using a Craig’s List ad.

Abernathy is looking at 65 years to life … while Jones and Jordan are facing 50 years to life.

The fight between the San Diego Mayor’s office and the Tourism Marketing District Board of Directors is hot again. Yesterday Mayor Bob Filner refused to release funds to the T-M-D because he says “We will issue their money when they hold up their end of the bargain, for example, approving payments to the Balboa Park Centennial.” Today at 9:00 AM the TMD is holding an open door meeting to talk about the funding dispute … they say that TMD employees will have to be laid off unless the Mayor releases the money. The meeting is at the Catamaran Hotel, Aviary Ballroom, 3999 Mission Blvd.

This morning at 10:45 organizers of the Rock n Roll Marathon and Half-Marathon will talk to the media. Topics will include security, race-day closures, and the new route.
