Abstract

This comment examines the progression of involuntary civil commitment statutes for repeat sex offenders beginning in the 1930's and moving into the 1990's in terms of statutory changes and improvements. This comment also illustrates why these involuntary commitment statutes are the best solution to curb sexual predation with an eye towards the ultimate protection of the public. Finally, this comment stresses the need for a uniform act designed to incorporate those aspects of the currently existing sex predator statutes which best protect the community from repeat sex offenders.
