SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Department of State Hospitals is proposing releasing a dangerous sexual predator in Campo.
Douglas Badger, 70, is a repeat offender with a history of assaulting young male hitchhikers and a 16-year-old girl.
He's been serving time in a state hospital since 1997 and was ordered to be released into outpatient care in August.
The state wants to place him in a property on Custer Road, about two miles away from an elementary school.
A court hearing is scheduled for January 3.
