NJ Sex Offenders and Civil Commitment

03
Jan

by in Civil Appeals, Criminal Defense

Persons who are deemed to be sexually violent predators may be civilly committed under the Sexually Violent Predators Act (SVPA). N.J.S.A. 30:4-27.24 to -27.38. This basically allows the State to keep a sex offender confined indefinitely, even after they have served their sentence.

The State must establish by clear and convincing evidence that the person has behaved in a sexually violent manner in the past and is highly likely to reoffend in the future as a result of a mental abnormality or personality disorder that affects the individual’s emotional, cognitive or volitional capacity. In re Commitment of W.Z., 173 N.J. 109, 120 (2002); N.J.S.A. 30:4-27.26.
