Supervisor Desmond: “Sexually Violent Predator Placement in Borrego Springs is Devastating for Community & San Diego County.”
I was just made aware of a judge’s decision to place Sexually Violent Predators Douglas Badger in Borrego Springs. I’m extremely disappointed in the judge’s decision. There’s no place in Borrego Springs, or anywhere, for these abominable criminals to be placed. I’m going to look at every option to continue to fight this placement, and to ensure these placements are stopped. This is devastating for the families of Borrego Springs and especially the home-schooled family with two deaf children that live right across the street.
Sexually Violent Predators are the worst of the worst. To be classified by the state as a sexually violent predator a person must have been convicted of a violent sex crime against at least one victim and be diagnosed with a condition that makes that person likely to re-offend. Douglas Badger has been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and sexual sadism.
