SACRAMENTO, Calif.—A California inmate is back on medical parole despite committing lewd acts days after he was first released in November.

Fifty-six-year-old Peter Post was sent to a San Diego-area long-term care facility Nov. 3 after he was found to be permanently physically incapacitated after a brain injury. Post, who was in prison for burglary, was returned to a secure medical facility a week later after exposing himself and committing a sex act in front of female nurses.

Corrections department spokeswoman Terry Thornton said Tuesday that parole officials decided Post still meets medical parole criteria. He was sent back to the private facility last week.

She says parole officials “looked at whether he had the mental capacity to understand the consequences of his actions.”
