The Minnesota Sex Offender Program is “clearly broken” and in need of repair. That’s according to a federal judge who ruled this month on a class action lawsuit, brought against the state, by clients of the program.
WCCO’s Susie Jones takes us “Inside the Razor Wire” with a series of reports on the Minnesota Sex Offender Program.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The brutal murder of 22-year-old Dru Sjodin is one of the most notorious crimes in Minnesota history.
Alfonso Rodriguez was convicted of raping and murdering Sjodin after she left work on Nov. 22, 2003.
After the crime, the number of sex offenders committed to the Minnesota Sex Offender Program increased dramatically.
Sjodin’s mother Linda Walker talked about the federal judge’s recent ruling and the potential for sex offenders to be released.
There isn’t a day that goes by that Walker doesn’t think about her daughter and what happened that awful day.
