HALLOWEEN SEX PREDATORS VO/SOT

LIVE: SEVERAL CRIME VICTIMS ORGANIZATIONS, PAROLE AGENTS AND FORMER POLITICIANS ARE CALLING ON THE GOVERNOR AND THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS AND REHABILITATION TO RESCIND A MEMO ISSUED LAST MONTH THAT CHANGED THE DEPARTMENT'S POLICY WITH SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATORS. SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATORS ARE THOSE WHICH ARE COMMITTED CIVILLY TO A MENTAL HOSPITAL WHERE THEY ARE INCARCERATED AND TREATED BY MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS.

SUPER: TODAY/MCNALLY TEMPLE ASSOCIATES/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:25) THE GROUP USED TOMORROW'S HOLIDAY AS THE THEME FOR THEIR EVENT TODAY, WHICH WAS CONDUCTED OUTSIDE THE OFFICE OF A PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM THAT CONTRACTS WITH THE CALIFORNIA CORRECTIONAL PEACE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION. THE GROUP CONTENDS THAT THE MEMO RECEIVED BY PAROLE AGENTS LAST MONTH LIMITS THEIR ABILITY TO SEND A SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATOR BACK TO PRISON FOR PAROLE VIOLATIONS SUCH AS POSSESSION OR USE OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. A CORRECTIONS SPOKESMAN SAYS THE MEMO SIMPLY STATES THAT SUCH OFFENDERS DON'T NEED TO BE RE-EVALUATED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF MENTAL HEALTH UNLESS THEIR VIOLATION IS A SEX OFFENSE WHICH COULD POTENTIALLY HAVE THEM RECLASSIFIED AS A SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATOR.
