New on Thirteen and NJTV: Civil Commitment


It's imprisonment reserved for just one type of offender - with no set sentence and no guarantee of release.

And, right now, here in New Jersey, there are nearly 500 men, who've already served their time ... but remain locked up ... because the State deems them too dangerous to release.

It's called Civil Commitment and the state says it's a treatment program, but the residents call it a prison. 

And Rodney Roberts, for 10 years, was one of them.

If you were with us last week, you saw Rodney's story: A guilty plea born of fear, a maxed out sentence of 7 years - and on the day of release, not a ride home, but a surprise transfer - to civil commitment.  He would be held there, as an incorrigible violent sex offender, for a full decade - although it would later be proven that he had been innocent from the start.
