Some question expansion of state's sex-offender facility
The state is about to expand its secure treatment facility for sex offenders, and some wonder if it's worth it.
The Sand Ridge facility in Mauston is scheduled to double its capacity to 600 beds by 2011, at a cost of $37.5 million.
Almost 375 sex offenders have had indefinite treatment since 1994, after serving in prison.
But only 12 people have earned permanent releases from Sand Ridge.
