Civil Commitment for Sex Offenders

This article examines the debate over whether or not sex offenders can be civilly committed even after they have completed their criminal sentences. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of U.S. v. Comstock No. 08–1224 on 1/12/10 which deals with the constitutionality of civil commitment.
