ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and state leaders are coming together Monday morning to discuss making changes to the Minnesota Sex Offender Program. The governor, lawyers and state lawmakers will sit down with the federal judge who ruled the program unconstitutional at a meeting in St. Paul that's closed to the press and public.
Judge Donovan Frank ordered changes to the program, which locks up sex offenders indefinitely, even after they've served their prison sentences.
But Gov. Dayton believes the program is not only constitutional, but also the right thing to do by focusing on protecting Minnesotans over the rights of sex offenders.
