Sex offender faces Nov. 19 hearing for not registering

By Neal Putnam

A Nov. 19 preliminary hearing has been set for Danny Shaw, who is charged with failing to register as a sex offender and was arrested on Halloween as he gave candy to trick-or-treaters in Ramona.

Shaw, 29, of Yucca Valley, was visiting family members in Ramona on Halloween when he was seen giving candy to children at the annual Main Street Trick or Treat event sponsored by Ramona Chamber of Commerce.

Shaw pleaded not guilty to the felony charge last week in El Cajon Superior Court. Deputy District Attorney Derek Grilz said Shaw was convicted of a sex charge involving a girl in Oregon in 2003.

Shaw was dressed as a zombie at the event and some parents told sheriff’s deputies he was acting suspiciously. His costume included white face paint with red stripes to resemble blood.

Shaw was 19 years old when he was convicted of the charge in Oregon. He remains in the South Bay Detention Facility on $100,000 bail. If convicted, he could be sentenced to six years in prison.
