An Escondido man who admitted sex with a 12-year-old-girl has been released from custody in San Diego County, and has requested transfer to Los Angeles County.

Christopher Bradley Nutt, 24, admitted sexual intercourse and possessing photographs of the 12-year-old girl in a plea deal. He was sentenced to 270 days in local jail.

The plea deal was signed in August, he was sentenced October 4, and with credit for time served he was released from custody by October 9.

Christopher Bradley Nutt was taken into custody May 27, 2012, when he was found with the child in his bedroom. Nutt had rented a room in a home in Escondido. The child’s parents reported their daughter missing and Escondido police were able to find the child through her cell phone use.

Christopher Nutt’s privately retained defense attorney, Dan Greene, stated: “There was no seducing. From the text messages it was clear that it was a mutual, consensual encounter. The victim registered on the ‘dating’ site as an adult.”

Christopher Nutt is required to register as a sex offender, and it will be “up to the probation department” to decide if he must wear a GPS monitor, according to attorneys.

Most recently Nutt was in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse asking for a jurisdictional transfer. He has been granted 5 years formal probation, which is expected to include transfer to L. A. County because he “will reside with his father,” according to court documents. Nutt listed his home address on East Bonita Street in San Dimas, in probation paperwork.

Nutt was also ordered to pay $540 restitution to his victim, to be paid in $50 per month installments. He is next due in court January 4, 2013, for a hearing on his jurisdictional transfer.

He was sentenced to 270 days in local jail.....The plea deal was signed in August, he was sentenced October 4, and with credit for time served he was released from custody by October 9....Christopher Bradley Nutt was taken into custody May 27, 2012,...

So he did 4.5 months, I thought the good time credits did not apply to sex offenders......

It was the Ca. version of Jessica's law about 5 or 6 yrs ago. But I think it only applied to state prison sentences because it was the CDCR that has to deal with it and obviosly they handle only operations for the state prison and parole system. I think pc4019 still applies to everyone else. Don't know for sure though, so I could be incorrect.

I think that may be the reason, the sex offender only does the 85% in the STATE PEN, not local/county/realignment. Doesn't make sense at all.

There was a couple sentenced in OC 2 days ago, TEACHERS, for sex offenses against students and they got NO jail time, only probation. And if that was not bad enough they were NOT required to register as sex offenders. You have MISDEMEANOR violations that REQUIRE sex offender registration, yet these convicted felons who were teachers who abused their authority in the worst possible way were not required to. That judge needs to be removed. Another example of how our system is broken.

I personally think the state should apply the credits to every offense, no exceptions, you either use them or you don't use them, no exceptions. Right now sex offenders and so called "violent" offense do 85% with 15% credits, except murderers, who do 100%.

I think the system is entirely screwed up, due to the prison guard union. They have wrecked the system, and THEY run it, not the state.
