In Illinois we have a law that allows a person to be locked up indefinitely because they are a dangerous sex offender. This law applies even when the person has NOT been convicted of any crime. The guy in the news story has been locked up for 6 years.
Six years is quite a while
To be jailed without a trial.
If this guy were a terrorist, it would be a big deal, I suppose.
But he's just some pervert rapist, so I guess that anything goes.
