Oklahoma To Build Nursing Home To House Sex Offenders

Oklahoma ABC affiliate KOCO ran a story recently on the fact that the state of Oklahoma is getting closer to building the nation’s first long-term care facility exclusively for sex offenders. The story quotes a non-profit organization that states approximately 30 sex offenders are living with other residents causing concern amongst residents and their families. Governor Brad Henry signed a law over the summer of 2008 that requires the state to build a nursing home specifically for sex offenders. For more information on this concept and story, click here.
