A transgender San Francisco woman sentenced in April to a year in jail has been released early and has reportedly already violated a judge’s order to stay out of the Castro district, according to a neighborhood safety advocate.

Patrick McClellan, 25, received her sentence after pleading no contest to misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and being a public nuisance.

In a community update distributed Thursday, Greg Carey, chair of Castro Community Patrol, said that although McClellan, also known as “Crackers,” was released early the stay-away order from the Castro is still effective until 2019.

However, Carey said, “Several merchants have reported seeing McClellan” in the area, which is bounded by Market Street on the north, 19th Street on the south, Sanchez street on the east, and Collingwood Street on the west.

“If found within this area, McClellan is subject to immediate arrest,” Carey said. He encourages people to call 911 and report that McClellan “is breaking a current stay-away order,” among other steps.

“DO NOT try to apprehend or follow this person as they have exhibited violent tendencies in the past,” Carey said. He also encouraged people to provide the exact address of where they saw McClellan and save any time/date-stamped video footage of McClellan.

Carey, whose update was shared in an email blast by Castro Merchants President Daniel Bergerac, added, “Some people confuse Patrick with another street person named Dane. CCOP does not have a photo of Dane, but Patrick is much younger (25) and physically aggressive, while Dane tends to be verbally shocking without making physical threats.”

McClellan didn’t respond to a Facebook message. The Bay Area Reporter wasn’t able to find a phone number for her.
