September 27, 2013 (Campo) – The Department of State Hospitals is proposing to release a violent sexual predator, Douglas Badger, 70, from a state mental hospital and placing him at 30033 Hartfell Road in Campo. Badger has been convicted of kidnapping and raping young male hitchhikers and sexually assaulting a young girl. He’s been diagnosed as a sexual sadist, served several terms in prison and the past 18 years in a state mental hospital.
“Given his violent history as a serial sexual predator, Douglas Badger forfeited his freedom long ago and should be locked up for good,” Supervisor Dianne Jacob stated in a media release. “It’s especially outrageous that this vile man would be housed at a location in Campo that is only four miles from two schools and a mile from a park where children gather and play.”
