Senate passes bill toughening release of sex offenders

About 450 sex offenders and mentally ill and dangerous Minnesotans could be released from state custody before they are fully treated, lawmakers and the Dayton administration say, so state leaders are rushing through legislation to keep them supervised.

“It could be days or weeks” when offenders would be released, Acting Human Services Commissioner Chuck Johnson said Monday, before senators unanimously approved the bill. The House still must take up the measure.
