Sex Offender Castration

MONTGOMERY, Ala An Alabama lawmaker is proposing a bill for the 2014 legislative session to further punish convicted child predators before they're released from prison.
Republican Rep. Steve Hurst of Munford is trying again to pass a bill requiring sex offenders over the age of 21 whose victims were 12 or younger to be surgically castrated before being released from prison.
Under Hurst's bill, the castration would be financed by the sex offender.
A version of the same bill Hurst tried passing last year didn't make it out of committee.
