Civil commitment center might finally release some prisoners

I don't know if Chris will be one of those people, but under Constitutional and media scrutiny, it seems Minnesota may finally release some civilly committed individuals.

In the 14 years since the program opened a facility in Moose Lake to treat civilly committed sex offenders, none have been released.
This could change soon, as approximately six offenders are expected to be returned to their communities fairly soon, Scott County Human Services Director Tim Walsh told county commissioners last week. One may live in Scott County.
