    Yet another example sex rehab program does not work. These sex offenders cannot be rehabbed - the dude was days away from being released and he did it anyways. Whose idea was it to have this monster alone with a woman? Whomever allowed that should be fired. The best solution we have in dealing with sex offenders is lock them up and and throw away the keys. It is not perfect but it's the only way to keep the public safe. This guy was closely supervised and he still did it

    Hernandez “. . .was part of a program in which low-level offenders nearing parole are temporarily released to help . . .” This comment doesn’t give citizens much confidence in the process of selecting “low level offenders.” When he is re-sentenced, I hope, for the safety of law abiding citizens everywhere that he gets the maximum: no concurrent sentences, no loopholes, and be more careful about who is selected as a low-level offender. If someone is selected as a low-level offender and violates the rules in any way there ought to be an automatic additional sentence attached to the current one plus no chance for parole.
