Bill Sponsorship: restricting parole for repeat sexual predators
Source: Protection from Sexual Predators Act (H.R.3990)
    Expresses the sense of the Congress that States should:
  • more seriously consider the relatively high recidivism rate of sexual offenders when deciding whether to plea bargain with first-time sexual offenders and whether to grant parole to sexual offenders; and
  • review their treatment and parole supervision programs for sexual offenders to assure that such programs are fulfilling their goals.
  • Whoever violates provisions regarding aggravated sexual abuse after previously having been convicted of another State or Federal sexual abuse offense shall be imprisoned for life.
  • Establish guidelines for State programs requiring any person who is convicted of a sex offense to register and keep up to date a current address with a designated State law enforcement agency for ten years after being released from prison
  • Maintain on-line availability of information obtained under this Act
  • Carry out a study of persistent sexual predators and to report to the Congress and the President.
