US Supreme Court Upholds Indefinite Confinement

May 17th, 2010 05:58 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader points out the news that the US Supreme Court today upheld a law that allows the Federal government to keep prison inmates behind bars beyond the end of their sentences, if officials determine they may be “sexually dangerous” in the future. The case involves one Graydon Comstock, who was certified as “dangerous” six days before his 37-month federal prison term for processing child pornography was to end. The vote was 7 to 2 and three of the justices who concurred with the decision raised an objection to the broadness of the language used in the majority opinion (written by Justice Kennedy).
