Alabama Lawmaker Wants to Castrate Pedophiles
More than three million American children are victims of child
molestation - that’s according to the Child Molestation Prevention
Almost half were violated by repeat offenders.
Now, Talladega County Representative Steve Hurst of Munford wants to
surgically castrate convicted pedophiles older than 21 who’s victims are
younger than twelve years old.
“You take a child who’s completely helpless. They have no way to defend
themselves. And someone does something of this nature to them, you have
literally destroyed that child for the rest of their life,“ says Hurst.
“If it’s an urge they can’t control… the castration certainly would take
care of that problem and protect neighborhoods, communities and future
victims,“ says Jefferson County Mike Hale, who supports the idea, which
is now officially House Bill 252.
Hale says his deputies re-arrest at least 30% of the child molesters who
He wants to send a stronger warning to predators:
“I think they would see this as a threat - from even committing one
crime to start with. If the word got out that Alabama would castrate you
if you molested a child, that would send a pretty strong message,“ says
But the ACLU sees it differently.
They’ve opposed the castration idea before in other states, arguing
first: that inmates might agree to it, thinking they’ll get released
early. Secondly: that it should be free to anyone who wants it.
Jay Jacobson of Texas argued back in 1997 when that state was debating a
“Why shouldn’t the Legislature make this available to anyone who feels
that this is a problem … whether they have been convicted or not, if
they’re so concerned about public safety?“
This bill will come up before the Alabama House Judiciary Committee in
the next few weeks.
Hurst is also proposing another bill that would allow a judge to give
the death penalty to someone who rapes a child less than six years old.
A.G. KING SAYS NEW CNA IS TOUGH AND EFFECTIVE
July 27, 2005
(MONTGOMERY)—Attorney General Troy King thanked the Alabama Legislature
today for unanimously approving a strong new Community Notification Act
to provide true protection of Alabama families and children from
dangerous sex offenders. Yesterday, the Legislature passed the bill
drafted and advocated by Attorney General King with the support of law
enforcement officers throughout the state. The bill passed 101 to 0 in
the House of Representatives and 33 to 0 in the Senate.
"With the passage of this legislation, we have made true our promise to
protect the children of Alabama from sex predators," said Attorney
General King. "We have taken the old, inadequate law that lulled
families into a false sense of security, and we have replaced it with a
tough and effective new Community Notification Act that will punish sex
offenders and give law enforcement the procedures and tools to track sex
offenders and to truly keep Alabama's children safe from these vicious
Alabama's Community Notification Act sets out procedures and
requirements for the tracking of sex offenders, and imposes penalties
for noncompliance, that Attorney General King said have proven to be
woefully inadequate. Attorney General King discussed in detail a bill he
drafted to bring dramatic reforms to this system. The bill provides far
better tracking of sex offenders, using GPS (global positioning
satellite) technology; it establishes tough new penalties; and it
strengthens existing penalties for noncompliance.
Among the significant changes in the new law are mandatory minimum
sentences of 20 years in prison for sex offenders convicted of class A
felonies and 10 years for class B felonies. These criminals would also
be ineligible for probation, split sentences, correctional incentive
time for early release, or parole. Attorney General King had proposed
that these conditions also apply to sex offenders convicted of class C
felonies, and that they be subject to a mandatory minimum sentence of 10
years, but the bill was amended and the final bill did not include the
Attorney General's recommendation for these crimes.
Another major provision of the new law is for GPS (global positioning
satellite) monitoring of sex offenders. Attorney General King himself
has been wearing a GPS ankle bracelet throughout the special session to
highlight the importance of passing a new Community Notification Act.
"With the Legislature's approval of this vital law, I am delighted to
remove this ankle bracelet from my leg and to know that similar tracking
devices will be on the legs of pedophiles in our state. The families and
children of Alabama are safer today than they were before the
Legislature convened. "
Attorney General King thanked the members of the Legislature who worked
to pass the new law, noting particularly Senator Hinton Mitchem of
Albertville, the bill's sponsor in the Alabama Senate; Senator Steve
French of Birmingham, lead co-sponsor; Representative Neal Morrison of
Cullman, sponsor in the House of Representatives, and lead House
co-sponsor Representative Mike Hill of Columbiana. "These gentlemen have
given their tireless and dedicated efforts to make Alabama safer for our
children," said Attorney General King. "As a father, and as this state's
Attorney General, I am grateful to them for taking on this important
cause and successfully passing a new Community Notification Act."
Attorney General King also thanked Governor Bob Riley for including the
bill in his call for the special session and his commitment to its
Attorney General King offered special thanks to the 180 sworn law
enforcement officers representing 85 law enforcement agencies from
across the state who assisted him in creating the legislation and who
unanimously endorsed the bill. He commended Assistant Attorney General
Scott Rouse, an attorney in his office who specializes in community
Other substantive changes under the new Community Notification Act are
• The Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center would be empowered to
establish a system of electronic monitoring for sex offenders.
• Sexually violent predators and those who commit class A felony sex
offenses against children younger than 12 would be subject to at least
10 years of electronic monitoring after their release.
• Those who commit sex offenses against children under age 12 would be
prohibited from working or loitering at or near schools, parks or other
areas where children gather.
• All penalties in the Community Notification Act would become class C
• The new law would extend and clarify those who are covered. Offenders
who pleaded "nolo contendere"—not contesting their guilt—to criminal sex
offenses in other states would be subject to community notification
requirements. It also would cover most offenders convicted under federal
laws and in other states without preliminary procedural hearings
• Reporting time periods would be tightened. Sex offenders would have to
report to local law enforcement after their release from prison or
change of residence within seven days instead of the 30 now allowed.
They would have to declare their intended place of residence 45 days
before their release from prison, instead of 30. For those who refuse to
provide information or give false addresses before their release from
prison, the proposed law clarifies the process for re-arresting and
criminally charging them.
• In addition to their residence, sex offenders would also have to
register to inform local law enforcement of their workplace. They would
bear the obligation to biannually verify their residence.
• Sex offenders would be required to possess either a driver's license
or identification card that would be marked by the Department of Public
Safety to identity them as sex offenders.
• Sex offenders classified as youthful offenders would have to undergo
sex offender treatment before their release from prison.
• Law enforcement and prosecutors would be entitled to information about
juveniles and youthful offenders that they need to enforce the Community
