Kentucky Study Urges Supervision After Release of Sex Offenders
A new study of Kentucky's sex-offender treatment program recommends that released offenders receive at least two years of state supervision after they leave prison. Katherine Peterson, the program's administrator, commented that most sexual offenders who commit another offense do so within two years of being released from prison. Kentucky House Judiciary Chairman Mike Bowling commented, "I support these tougher requirements because government's number one mission is public protection."
