From the LAPD: "On July 19, 2008 at about 12:20 p.m., Hollenbeck division officers saw a man dressed in a hospital gown walking outside of the USC Medical Center near Boyle Heights. Officers went to check on the man and discovered that he was Charles Frank McDuffy, 64, who had walked out of the hospital on his own. The officers took McDuffy back to the hospital. During a routine background check, the officers found that McDuffy was a sexual offender and had failed to complete his annual registration. The last time McDuffy registered was in 1971. McDuffy was arrested for failing to register as a sexual offender and is being held on $20,000 bail." 1971? That's 36 years!
