No one will be released from MN-MSOP in 2010
I haven't gotten anything new from Chris to post as of late, so I thought I'd share the latest bad news. It was recently reported the Minnesota Civil Commitment Centers will not be releasing anyone this year after it was reported earlier this year they planned on releasing some civilly committed individuals. It is all a game to this program.
Minnesota Sex Offender Program: "No Men Will Be Released in 2010"
November 22, 2010 Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - In a follow up to our report on the Minnesota Sex Offender Program spokespeople say no men will be released in 2010. Sex offenders who will be released must go before a court appointed panel after they've successfully completed treatment and because the court has not begun the process to release any men at this point no releases will be made before the end of the year. Spokespeople say the final stage before any release is to transfer offenders to the facility in St. Peter. No one has been transferred in preparation for release at this point. There are currently 587 sex offenders in the program and in the 15 years of Minnesota's Civil Commitment program no one has been successfully released.
