A leading victims advocate wants state-appointed psychologists who declare sex offenders can be released from prison held accountable if the predators strike again.
Jennifer Lane, president of Community Voices, said charges should be brought against the examiners in some cases.
“I’m so sick and tired of this,” Lane told the Herald. “There are more people defending sex offenders than the victims.”
Pedophiles and rapists don’t age out of their horrific habits, she said. “It’s a mental issue.”
Her comments come as the Supreme Judicial Court is “taking under advisement” a petition to keep serial child rapist Wayne W. Chapman civilly committed in MCI-Shirley. He’s accused of molesting up to 100 boys.
