A bill to limit educational credit for convicted sex offenders would help protect the public against predators.
People sent to prison for sex offenses couldn’t receive credit toward an early release by earning college degrees under a proposal supported by an Indiana Senate committee.
The Senate’s corrections committee voted 8-1 last week to advance the bill. The bill has the support of state Sen. Brent Steele, R-Bedford, whose district includes much of Jackson County.
