Description

This investigation looks at a 1999 Colorado law intended to notify communities when sexually violent offenders move in. What they found was that, in six years, the state only identified two sexually violent predators out of 1,300. In addition to identifying which sexually violent predators were moving in, the law requires that the Colorado Department of Corrections evaluate the offenders before they leave the prison. The Denver Post analysis shows that the Department of Corrections had not done any evaluations in six years.
