TACOMA — Many of the treated sex predators released from the Special Commitment Center on McNeil Island end up staying in Pierce County.
State lawmakers from the county would rather see them returned to the counties where they were convicted.
Seven state senators from Pierce County introduced Legislature Wednesday that would ask judges to send released detainees back where they came from.
The News Tribune reports that of 16 detainees released to a supervised group home from 2012 to 2014 nine went to Pierce County, although none came from the county.
