George England, a convicted repeat child molester from Costa Mesa, has lost his bid for parole from Salinas Valley State Prison. The 65-year-old appeared Monday before the prison’s parole board, which ruled against granting him early release.
England’s prison sentence tentatively is set to expire in March, said Susan Schroeder, spokeswoman for the Orange County district attorney’s office, which is trying to keep England locked up. Prosecutors will file a petition under the Sexually Violent Predator law to keep the inmate in a mental institution once his sentence is completed, officials said.
At Monday’s parole board hearing, England continued to deny that he molested three girls in the 1970s, Schroeder said. She added that he plans to live in Canada upon his release from prison.
