Human Castration In Kentucky?

(AP & WXIX) Lieutenant Governor Steve Pence says Kentucky should examine castration for sex offenders. A commission is examining Kentucky's sexual offender laws for presentation of possible changes to the 2006 General Assembly. Pence said surgical or chemical castration should be considered for repeat offenders. Pence also said the General Assembly should consider stronger punishment for sex offenders who do not comply with the registry requirements. The remarks came after an event to mark Kentucky's participation in a national computer registry of sexual offenders, even though Kentucky has had its own registry for more than five years. At least eight states allow castration as a way to deter repeat sex offenders. Montana found the procedure is half as much of what it would cost to put those addicted to sexual attacks in prison.
