    A man identified by officials as a sexually violent predator may soon be released to a home in Borrego Springs.

    Terry Stone was convicted of abusing five boys between the ages of 6 and 11.

    In 1994, he was sentenced to 19 years in prison, and in 2003, he was committed to the state hospital as a sexually violent predator.

    After a court determined that Stone could be released into the community for continued treatment and supervision in December, the Department of State Hospitals has been looking for an appropriate location. 

    The agency announced it's considering moving Stone to a home in the 2600-block of Frying Pan Road in Borrego Springs.

    A previous location in Spring Valley was considered earlier this year.

    The public can comment on Stone's placement at a court hearing on May 2 at San Diego Superior Court, Department 53.
