Sex-crime Terms Have A Limit

by Sarah Ovaska - September 13th, 2007 - News & Observer

The federal government cannot keep sexual predators locked up beyond their scheduled release dates, according to a ruling by a federal judge. The ruling by Senior U.S. District Judge W. Earl Britt declared unconstitutional part of a law approved in July 2006 with much fanfare.

The 59-page ruling, issued last week at the Raleigh federal courthouse, stopped the government's attempt to keep five "sexually dangerous" men away from the public through a process known as civil commitment, which allows a person to be held past his incarceration with the intention of rehabilitation.

"The court concludes that civil commitment of sexually dangerous persons ... is not a necessary and proper extension of Congress' power," Britt wrote.

First the pervert lovers on our courts shorten incarceration times to the absolute minimum in order to get these enemies of the state back on the street as soon as possible. With the high recidivism rate of sexual predators, judges and lawyers love the surety of additional legal fees derived from turning these perverts free. There is no surpise one of the pervert lovers has immediately interfered with this attempt to protect society. The law is a blatant interference by the Legislature with the revolving door process of turning the perverts free. Who is surprised the pervert lovers on our courts are opposed to that?
