Civil commitment and sex offenders.

First Person Civilly Committed as Sexually Dangerous Person Under AWA, Sex Crimes blog, 13 February 2009.  Professor Yung is reporting an event reported to him.

This is worth reading.  I've had at least one prior child pornography client picked up while on parole for hanging around children in a local child's play-park.

To commit an individual under [the AWA] provisions, the Government must
establish that an individual:
(1) had engaged in child molestation or
sexually violent conduct in the past;

(2) suffers from a mental
illness, abnormality or disorder; and

(3) would, because of that
illness, abnormality or disorder, have serious difficulty in refraining
from future acts of child molestation or sexually violent conduct in
the future.
