Tehama County D.A. Fighting To Keep Hooker Behind Bars

A hearing is set that will attempt to prevent parole for a man who kept a woman locked in a box in Red Bluff nearly every day for 7 years. In 1977 Cameron Hooker kidnapped Colleen Stan. He raped her repeatedly, tortured her, and kept her locked inside a wooden box for most of each day and night. She finally escaped in 1984. Hooker is also suspected of killing Marie Spannhake, whose body was never found. He was sentenced to 104 years behind bars, later reduced to 74 years. In a move to relieve prison overcrowding, a 3-judge panel in 2014 made it possible for inmates to get paroled if they’re over the age of 60 and have served at least 25 consecutive years. A parole board denied parole for Hooker in 2015, partly because of his possession of sadistic bondage pornography in prison. Now he might be eligible for parole in September because of changes in the good conduct credit system. Tehama County D.A. Matt Rogers has been pushing to get Hooker declared a sexually violent predator, which would make it easier to keep him behind bars. A hearing is set in San Mateo County on March 30th.
