The Star Tribune analyzed data and found that the majority of sex offenders with a high chance of committing another crime were released instead of being admitted to a psychiatric institution. One of the offenders, Alfonso Rodriguez Jr., was charged with the disappearance of Dru Sjodin, a college student in North Dakota.

The article also describes the high cost of the sex-offender treatment program compared to the cost of prison, and exlains that politics might have something to do with the inconsistency in committing repeat offenders.
