The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office said Cooley has no ties to the area, but if the placement is granted, Cooley would live just outside Galt city limits within a mile of an elementary school.

According to public records, Cooley was charged in Humboldt County in multiple cases of sexual battery, kidnapping, and sexual assault of a minor.
