VALLEJO —

As of Monday, convicted sex offender Fraisure Smith is calling Vallejo home.

He won’t live in a house. Instead, per the judge’s order, he’ll live in a motel. And he’ll have to move every 30 days.

Now, on his third day of freedom, FOX40 found Smith outside the Vallejo Police Department.

” Have things been … Fraisure, anything you can tell us since you’ve been here? What you’re hoping for? Anything you’d like to say to the citizens of Vallejo?” FOX40 and others asked.

Smith didn’t answer.

Smith was sentenced to prison in 2006 after he pleaded no contest to assault with intent to commit rape. Vallejo police detectives say they spoke to him for a few hours on Wednesday afternoon.

“About his status and what expectations are, and some of the ground rules, I guess, as it pertains to Liberty Healthcare,” Vallejo police Lt. Kenny Parks said.

Liberty Healthcare, a private company contracted by the state, helped to finally place him at the Motel 6 on Enterprise Street in Vallejo.

The move comes after several months of trying to place him in Fairfield and the surrounding county area, where there was fervent protest from residents opposed and fearful of living next to him.

“Well, at this point, there’s no legal restrictions that are placed. We have no legal grounds to make any sort of demands. No legal grounds to make any sort of requests. And anything that’s done is going to be done voluntarily through Liberty Healthcare,” Parks said.

Someone from Liberty Healthcare will be with Smith 24 hours a day. No police personnel are committed to monitoring him.

“At this point, we really have no legal grounds to do anything with Mr. Smith, other than to register him and to stay in touch with Liberty Healthcare to see if there’s any changes,” Parks said.
