SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The victim of a violent serial rapist was forced to relive her nightmare after finding out the man who attacked her will be released from prison later this month.

The California Department of Corrections said the man, who became known as “The Pillowcase Rapist,” will be released in just days even though he never served his full sentence

Ronald Feldmeier was convicted of raping and attacking women in the 1980s all in the downtown Sacramento area.

CBS13 spoke with one of his victims who said the judge in his case told her Feldmeier would die in prison.

The victim, who chose to remain nameless, she was attacked, beaten and raped by Feldmeier at just four years old.

“He was my mom’s boyfriend,” she said. “Clean-cut, well-spoken…he was the first boyfriend my mom’s family actually liked, ironically.”

The victim said both she and her mom testified against Feldmeier and he was sentenced to 67 years behind bars.

“He stared at me the entire time I testified,” she said. “He just stared at me with the same eyes he has now.”

Now, she’s scared for her life that Feldmeier will come after her once he’s released from prison at the end of the month.

“I finally had that peace and I feel like in 9 days it’s all getting taken away from me,” she said.

The Department of Corrections said they are legally bound to observe what they call a “work incentive law” from 1983 in effect when Feldmeier was convicted even though the law has since been superseded.

“We always have to follow the law that existed at the time of the crime,” Schubert said.

Schubert said at the time Feldmeier was sentenced, the law gave him “work credit.”  It gave inmates one day per credit for each day served while working a prison job.

“Everything under the law, whether we agree with that law or not, was followed in this particular case,” the district attorney said.

That meant Feldmeier legally completed his sentence in almost half the time.

But CBS13 is digging deeper. We wanted to know what safety precautions are in place for when Feldmeier is released.

The answer: The district attorney says Feldmeier will need to check in with a parole officer every 10 days.

“We have a system in place to make sure he’s monitored,” the D.A. said.

But still, his victim wants you to see his picture – for your safety and hers.

“I don’t want him to ever hide in society again,” she said.

    My heart is with you 4 yr old. I am also a victim of Ronald Feldmeier! My experience was horrible and I was also told he would never get out of jail. But the fact that he could rape and brutalize a 4 year old child and get out of jail is unthinkable! He held me hostage for hours doing unthinkable things that no one should have to endure. I cannot think how his rights could be placed above mine or any other victims. Especially a 4 year old, Shame on our system! This man is not repairable and now I have to figure out a way to protect myself because the system gives more value to the right of predators than victims! How incredibly sad. Please raise up and take a stand to protect our community against such an evil person!

    This person ,Feldmeier , is allowed now to get away with this same crime or maybe something worse, Yes we do need the death penalty for all those free and need death. This goes for all the criminals and terrorists from the middle east who are here now and getting away with their criminal acts and never made to pay for it. The wild west was taking care of business way back then when they used “boot hill” for the evil that did not belong here as well. Bring back the death penalty!

    Tell Newsom to stop this…he won’t.

    Checking in every 10 days is not often enough. This man should not be released. He could seek revenge or continue. While some folks educate themselves and improve; others ruminate and plot revenge.

    This gives me the cringes. I have a bad past. I live on the other side; PA, but I every day I fear of any of my bad past repeating itself and I wouldn’t wish any of them on my worse enemy. I don’t understand of why they’d release him. He should have a life sentence or be monitored at ALL times
