EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) - The son of sex offender Matthew Hedge pleaded not guilty Thursday in El Cajon to child molestation charges.
Shaun Crocker, 34, molested a 13-year-old girl at least six times, prosecutors allege.
Crocker appeared before a judge at the El Cajon courthouse on charges of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14. He was ordered to be held on $1 million bail and return to court Aug. 16 for a readiness hearing.
Crocker's birth certificate shows he is the son of Matthew Hedge, a sex offender convicted in 1989 of molesting four children.
Hedge was treated at Atascadero State Hospital. His housing situation was met with controversy from concerned parents. Authorities placed him in a trailer on the grounds of Donovan State Prison in Otay Mesa; he later moved to a downtown residential hotel.
