Violent Sex Offender Evicted From Vallejo Motel: Officials

A violent sex offender who was put into a Vallejo motel after his release earlier this week has been evicted, officials said Thursday.

Vallejo city leaders said the Motel 6 manager did not know they had rented a room to Fraisure Smith. The managers said state contractors, who picked Smith up from a state hospital, checked him in under their own names.

City officials believe the contractors were trying to hide Smith's identity.

It is unclear where the convicted sex offender will stay Thursday night.

Smith's attorney, Jim McEntee said he wishes the mayor and city officials would stop inciting panic.

"We want the pandemonium to stop," McEntee said. "We want them to respect the court's decision. People need to act like responsible adults."

Smith, 51, was sentenced to prison in 2006 after he pleaded no contest to assault with intent to commit rape. Smith filed a petition for conditional release and unconditional discharge in April 2012.

A Solano County Superior Court judge last month ordered Smith's release on transient status. Smith was housed at Coalinga State Hospital before his release.
