BAY POINT (BCN) — A repeat sex offender who was classified by the state as a sexually violent predator was arrested Friday morning for allegedly sexually harassing another man during a therapy session, a Contra Costa County sheriff’s spokesman said.

Cary Verse, a 40-year-old Bay Point resident, was arrested in Concord around 10:30 a.m. He was transported to Coalinga State Hospital Friday  afternoon.

Sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee characterized the alleged harassment as “unwanted sexual advances.”

Verse was convicted of four sex offenses against male victims in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The first offense was in 1988 when, at the age of 17, he pulled a knife on a 14-year-old boy and fondled him.

While serving time at a juvenile hall the following year, Verse escaped with another boy and then sexually assaulted him.

He spent a year in jail for the offense and, while on parole in 1990, received another three years’ jail time for the sexual battery of a 14-year-old boy.

Two years later, again on parole, Verse bound and sexually assaulted a homeless man in San Pablo.

He completed his prison sentence in 1998, but because of his history of sexual offenses, he was sent to Atascadero State Mental Hospital to undergo treatment in the hospital’s sexually violent predator program.

In 2004, Verse became only the second sex offender to win release under the State Department of Mental Health’s conditional release program.

Those conditions included 24-hour satellite monitoring and restrictions on who he could associate with and under what conditions. He was also chemically castrated.

After living in two hotels and an abbey, Verse found a home on Willow Pass Road in Bay Point, where he lived for close to two years until he was pulled over in Walnut Creek for a broken tail light. During the stop, police found a 14-year-old boy riding as a passenger in his car, a violation of one of the terms of his release.

Verse had reportedly driven the boy several times before he was caught, but he did not harm him. Nonetheless, he was sent back to Atascadero in January 2007.

He was released again in June 2007 and returned to Bay Point under the same conditional release program.

    The best part about this, though, is that he is charged with offending another perv, so we have the best of both worlds. We have one perv going to jail, and another perv who now knows what iit feels like he did to HIS victim at no expense to additional women and children.

    California should start with execution and get rid of parole system which is a big loophole and its causing more hard than keeping our community safe. We should have prison system like in china and the middleast so people will think twice before committing a crime.

    I assume he’s not supposed to associate with other sex fellons, which is what
    I think he needs, a boyfriend. An S&M perv like boyfriend. So he will leave the un willing alone.
