HEMET --

Detectives late Thursday arrested a convicted sex offender featured on a most-wanted Web page and checked on several others during a sweep that is part of Hemet's new Directed Policing Plan.

The plan, which received a green light from the Hemet City Council last month, targets locations and issues that residents have complained about.

The initiative calls for increasing the number of sweeps and sting operations targeting sex offenders, drugs, gangs and prostitution.

It also includes the overhauling of police schedules, so more officers will be on patrol when needed for special operations, police Lt. Dave Brown said.

The sweep, conducted from 5 to 10 p.m., involved detectives showing up at the homes of several registered sex offenders who failed to register with law enforcement, Sgt. Kevin Caskey said.

Sexual predator says he is ready for freedom

A sexually violent predator seeking release from a state hospital into San Diego County told a judge yesterday he has no desire to harm anyone and will not pose a danger to the community.

Douglas Badger testified he can now suppress his deviant sexual fantasies, doesn't plan to drink alcohol and has brought his mental illness under control through medication.

Badger testified yesterday that he picked up 450 to 500 hitchhikers between 1964 and 1974. At first, he simply picked them up and made deals to exchange money for sex. When the hitchhikers stepped out of his vehicle he drove off with their belongings, he testified.

Badger told the judge that in later years he handcuffed and blindfolded his victims and forced them to commit sex acts, threatening to kill them if they refused.

"They were just like insects," he said of his victims. "I had no feelings for them."

Man charged in death despite missing body
Police say his wife saw the victim, but won't testify
By Cheryl Winkelman, STAFF WRITER

It's a case right out of a true crime novel.

Testimony at a recent preliminary hearing for a Manteca man, Roy Gerald Smith, has revealed a bizarre sequence of events surrounding the disappearance of Ripon resident Mary Marino-Starkey.

Starkey's body has never been found, but Smith, 44, of Manteca has been charged with her murder and is awaiting a trial date. He could face the death penalty.

Smith has been charged with murder with a special circumstance for lying in wait. He is accused of luring her away from her home June 15 under the guise of buying her boat, then killing her.

Later that day, about 6:30 or 7 p.m., Smith's wife, Lolita Akemi Rodriguez, saw a dead woman in the family's bathtub, according to San Joaquin County Sheriff's Detective Lawrence Gardiman, who testified at Smith's preliminary hearing last month.

Smith is a four-time sexual offender, according to court documents.

Big props to the Hemet City Council and police department. Hemet seems to be just the latest to be getting more serious about sex offenders.

Is anyone really suprised that Douglas Badger is claiming he is now "O.K."? Is anyone really suprised that Badger was supposed to move in to Faith House earlier this year, a halfway house near San Diego State University? Reports are that Badger's victims were in their early 20's, the same age as the kids at San Diego U.

And then there is Roy Gerald Smith. Are they trying to tell us that this 4 time sex offender killed someone? How can that be? If he is out of prison he must be 'cured', right?
