DA takes fight over release of Tibor Karsai to California high court

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday her office has petitioned the California Supreme Court in the latest attempt to block the release of a sexually-violent predator into the county.

The district attorney's office is petitioning the state's high court to overturn the recent appellate court ruling stating that convicted rapist Tibor Karsai should be released as a transient in Santa Barbara County. Dudley is also requesting that Karsai stay in custody until the Supreme Court has made its decision.
