Matthew Jason Weaver, a 45-year-old registered sex offender was charged Monday, July 22, on suspicion of raping a 19-year-old developmentally delayed woman in Garden Grove, according to the O.C. Register.

Weaver picked up the victim in Huntington Beach on April 15, then drove her to Garden Grove, where he allegedly raped her, according to the Garden Grove Police. The young woman had visited the beach and was looking for a ride home after missing her bus.

Weaver was previously convicted in March 2014 of two misdemeanor counts of lewd conduct in a public place and one count of indecent exposure. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail and ordered to do eight hours of community service.

Weaver bot busted again while he was still on probation, when he exposed himself in his car while making eye contact with two victims on July 11, 2016. That led to another conviction of two felony counts of indecent exposure and two misdemeanor counts of lewd conduct in a public place and he was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison.

In that case the victims took a picture of the Weaver’s car and gave a license plate number to the police.

Two days later Weaver tailgated another driver and swerved to pull up in the lane next to her, then — while yelling to get her attention — contorted his body upward in an attempt to expose his crotch.

In this latest case Weaver was charged with sexual penetration by a foreign object and force, sexual battery, attempted sodomy by force and forcible oral copulation, all felonies, according to court records. He is being held without bail.
