SANTA MARIA, Calif. -

A dangerous serial rapist residing in northern Santa Barbara County is placed on 24-hour supervision for another year.

It’s one win in a battle the district attorney's office has been fighting for over a year now to keep Tibor Karsai separated from our community.

The 61-year-old was convicted twice for raping two teens--one in Santa Barbara County and another in Placer County.

He served one prison sentence only years after the other.

When he was released last year from a state mental institution, the district attorney fought to keep him out of Santa Barbara County, where a reported victim lives.

The DA lost that battle, but the Placer County judge agreed to place strict 24-hour supervision on Karsai.

Today, it was extended for another year. 

An attorney with the case says the county will continue to fight to keep Karsai under watch as long as possible.
