Ireland: Councils to house sex offenders in radical new plan

SEX offenders should be given homes by local authorities on their release from prison, according to a report being considered by Justice Minister Alan Shatter.

A high-level plan devised by a number of powerful state agencies recommends that sex offenders be placed in social housing estates and apartment complexes so as to avoid homelessness. The plan, which relates to the Dublin region, is designed to assist sex offenders who have just left prison or returned from abroad.

  1. Avig

    The approach Ireland is considering to house sex offenders just being released from prisons appears to be both sensible and humane for all parties concerned: the offender, the victims, the community. A similar approach should be adopted in California, with the Parole department footing the bill for room and board; many offenders will need this until they can get jobs or arrange other support.

  2. Q

    I seriously doubt anything like what the Irish are working on would ever happen in California, let alone any other state. With all of the misinformation the politicians and police have the public believing something as humane and sensible would never happen, especially with all of the hate that is encouraged with the above mentioned misinformation.

  3. USA

    This article kind of shows how disturbing California and the rest of the country are doing wrong! This is certainly a more humane way of dealing with those being released from prison. THose in prison are being treated like animals, while yet when they are released they are supposed to act like humans!
