SAN DIEGO, Calif. - A convicted serial rapist in California may have his sentence cut short by 20 years, and now the community is fighting back. 

In 1989, Alvin Quarles pled guilty to attacking more than a dozen women at knifepoint and he was sentenced to 50 years in prison in San Diego. 

After 30 years, a judge has ruled in favor of his release. 

One woman who survived an attack in 1988 says she fears what will happen. 

"He is a self-admitted sexually violent predator," said Mary Taylor. "If he reoffends, I will feel like a failure." 

Quarles has been considered for release in 2013 as well.
