Criminal Practice – Prisoners – ‘Sexually Dangerous Persons’ – Civil Commitment – 18 U.S.C. 4241 & 4248 (access required)

U.S. v. Broncheau In this action by the government seeking civil commitment of nine federal prisoners as "sexually dangerous persons" under 18 U.S.C. § 4248, the 4th Circuit says the district court erred in dismissing the proceeding on the ground that, for these prisoners whose sentences included terms of supervised release, the government should have proceeded under § 4241 rather than § 4248.
