http://www.wdel.com/story.php?id=188558176345A Delaware lawmaker is proposing getting tougher on repeat, high-risk sex offenders, with restrictions that include chemical castration.
Rep. John Atkins, D-Millsboro, says he is drafting legislation that would require chemical castration for all male high-risk, repeat offenders who are older than 21 and have targeted children younger than 12.
Atkins says he is motivated by two recent high-profile cases: a Delaware pediatrician charged with raping patients and a registered sex offender charged with kidnapping a Maryland girl who was later found dead.
Another proposed measure would require special stamps for driver's licenses and special license plates for high-risk, repeat sex offenders.
Atkins is proposing that sex offenders serve the full terms they are sentenced to and a mandatory life sentence for sex offenders convicted of a second sexual offense.
