Alan A.Cook is someone I am familiar with from covering courts.
This guy knows the system, represented himself, got a plea deal and since then has been a frequent name in the jail reports of daily arrests.
This is a post I did on him:
Jun 29, 2015
I saw his photo on Operation Safe Streets and instantly recognized him. Someone asked how many times has he been arrested. According to OSS "Only 190 times since 2012."
Megan's law CA page is up now but search feature still "broken" so cannot provide updated information.
Another example why Probation is an utter failure in Humboldt.
AB 109, Prop 47 and 57 statwide mistakes. Put that money in for mandatory mental health and drug services and increase jail space that offers a pathway to voluntary treatment and a chance to prove you are ready to change.
Info below from OSS:
"Attention Fortuna Residents -
It's hard to guess how some people just seem to teleport from one city to another... but there's a good chance Mr. Alan Cook is planning to lay roots in your city. He was scooped up today (after someome called to police) by City Ambulance and taken to RMH due to his intoxication levels.
Hopefully he'll be taken to jail once he's cleared but there's no guarantee. His actions earlier were described as "increasingly aggressive" by the caller. He's usually a headache for citizens of Arcata and Eureka. He's not supposed to be drinking per his probation terms and he's also a registered sex offender. If you sell liquor, please refrain from selling to him. If he's causing a problem, call law enforcement.
Please note - we are not advocating anyone cause him any trouble but people should be aware of who's in their neighborhood. At least we think so. Stay safe and be alert!"
