Placement hearing for SVP Douglas Badger set for Friday

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Friday is the proposed placement hearing for sexually violent predator Douglas Badger.

Badger, who has a history of assaults on young men, was released briefly in 2006 to live in a trailer outside the gates of Donovan State Prison. He went back to a state hospital for medical reasons, but now he’s about to be set free.

They are proposing to place him in Borrego Springs along with other SVP, Michael Martinez.

KUSI’s Teresa Sardina has all the details about the proposed placement and a reaction of a mother who lives across the street from the proposed home.
