Habitual Indecent Exposure Suspect Arrested Following Undercover Operation
After completion of an undercover operation on Fleming Island, CCSO detectives obtained warrants and arrested 50-year-old George Hager. Hager is charged with multiple counts of indecent exposure in public. He remains in the Clay County Jail held on a total bond of $50,000.
Hager is no stranger to law enforcement and has an extensive history involving similar sex crimes. However, because these are misdemeanor charges, Hager doesn't meet the criteria by law for a sex offender of sexual predator designation nor the restrictions and monitoring that accompanies that. As such, we felt it was important to notify the community of his arrest and of his ongoing criminal activity, i.e. exposing himself to women who walk/jog/ride past his home on CR 220.
There is a good possibility that there are additional victims and we encourage them to contact our agency at this time if they feel they have additional information about Hager. Affected citizens may call 904-264-6512 and request to speak with the CCSO Intelligence Unit's Det. K. Padgett.
