EL CAJON, CA – Six felony charges of lewd acts on a child were filed Thursday against a 34-year-old East County man accused of sexually assaulting an underage girl.

Shaun Crocker, also known as Shawn Hedge Crocker, according to a criminal complaint, is accused of touching the victim inappropriately on various occasions between September and November of last year.

According to KGTV, Crocker is the son of Matthew Hedge, a convicted sex molestation convictions, but also a judge's controversial decision to lift Hedge's sexually violent predator status and release him from custody without supervision.

KGTV cites statements from the alleged victim's mother regarding Crocker's parentage, though the District Attorney's office has not confirmed the relation.

Crocker, who faces 18 years in prison if convicted of all charges, was arrested Wednesday and remains in custody on $1 million bail, according to county jail records. He's next due in court Aug. 16.

Hedge pleaded guilty in 1989 to molesting four children in the San Diego area and served 12 years in prison. He was committed to the sexually violent predator treatment program in 1997, but was released into outpatient treatment in 2005 in a trailer outside Donovan State Prison in Otay Mesa.

His outpatient status was revoked within six weeks for violating terms of his release.

After more than two years of in-patient hospital treatment, the court in October 2008 again granted Hedge's petition to be placed in outpatient treatment.

In 2012, he was released without supervision after San Diego Superior Court Judge David Gill determined he no longer posed a danger to others and was unlikely to re-offend.

  1. This article states that the victims mom who reported this alleged crime mentioned Shaun Crocker’s father. I read that the mom of the “victim” falsely reported this because Crocker was hedges the registered offenders son and she knew everyone would believe it because of the relation. The “victims” mom is a known prostitute and is unstable. It looks bad but if u read every little detaiI it’s obvious. I think it’s a shame the media is putting him out there like he is a bad guy he may look like he’s bad but if you read a lot of the other publishing he’s not a bad kid, the mom is lying. She’s the liar, this is sad. Stay up to date, he’s innocent.
