There's a new proposal to allow a sexually violent predator to live in a home in Ramona. A public hearing will be held March 13 for residents to comment on the plan.
45-year-old Matthew Hedge was found guilty in 1989 of molesting two boys and two girls in San Diego. He served prison time before entering a treatment program at a State hospital. After completing the treatment he was allowed to live in a trailer outside Donovan State Prison, but was returned to the hospital after News 8 cameras taped children going into his halfway house in 2005.
In October, a judge ruled Hedge should be released back into San Diego Countyon an outpatient basis. The proposed location is a home in the 3300 block of Highway 67 in Ramona.
The public hearing on the proposed placement is set to be held in 1:30 p.m. on March 13 in Department 55 of the San Diego Superior Court, located at 220 Broadway in the city of San Diego.
The Department of Mental Health is seeking public comment on the placement.
Comments will be taken until Feb. 27, and can be made through e-mail, telephone or by letter. Comments may be submitted to: E-mail: email@example.com
Telephone: (858) 495-3639
