Allen Bill Would Offer Early Release from Prison

State Sen. Mark Allen (R-Spiro) has introduced a bill to offer voluntary chemical castration to sex offenders for an early release from prison. Allen represents Sequoyah and LeFlore Counties. Allen introduced SB 671 on Jan. 22, and it has been sent to a judiciary committee for a reading. Allen said the bill could alleviate overcrowding in Oklahoma's prisons.

Allen said, "It's a voluntary program to get an early release from prison. They can go through the chemical or a physical process." He added that his research shows the process has a high success rate. The process, or versions of it, are in use in Texas, Florida and California, and six other states, Allen said. If voted into law, it could go into effect as soon as November.
