Description

In the 1998 Omnibus Crime Bill, Section 15, the Minnesota Legislature directed the commissioner of corrections, in cooperation with the commissioner of human services, to study and make recommendations on issues involving sexually dangerous persons and persons with sexual psychopathic personalities. The legislature mandated that the study examine the current system of treatment, commitment, and confinement of these individuals; financial costs associated with the current system; and the advantages and disadvantages of alternatives to the current system, including indeterminate criminal sentencing and changes to the patterned sex offender sentencing law. The study also must examine how other states have responded to these individuals. Finally, the legislature directed the commissioners of corrections and human services to include in the report a recommendation concerning whether and to what extent statements made by sex offenders during the course of sex offender treatment should be treated as confidential
