PPH: Throw Sex Offenders in Jail Longer

The Press Herald has an editorial regarding an anonymous sex offender's lawsuit against the City of Westbrook over the constitutionality of the city's sex offender ordinance. And without delving too deeply into John Doe VI's case against Westbrook, the opinion piece expresses skepticism about the effectiveness of "exclusionary zones" and points to longer jail terms for the offenders as an effective alternative.
