A Republican state Senator from the Cambria/Center area is proposing chemical castration as a term of parole for repeat offenders. Senator Wayne Langerholc said in his co-sponsor memo that the proposal would also extend to men who are convicted of committing sexual crimes against kids under age 13. Under his plan, only male sex offenders be injected with a testosterone-reducing drug before release. Langerholc’s memo suggests voluntary chemical castration could also be an option. He says there are at least ten other states that also have chemical castration as a parole condition.
