Description

The Oshkosh Northwestern investigates Wisconsin's 1994 tough sexual predator law. The law allows district attorneys and the state attorney to file court petitions to involuntarily commit sexual predators. Officials say the Wisconsin Resource Center, the sex offender facility, is crucial for the prevention of sexually violent crimes. The program has worked so well that officials have been overwhelmed by the numbers. They expect one predator per week to enter the program. Crime trends and statistics are also featured. Note that this is only the first part of the series.(Feb. 25, 1996)
