(1) The Department of Corrections shall establish a pilot treatment program for persons convicted of sex crimes who are eligible for parole or post-prison supervision. The purpose of the program is to reduce the risk of reoffending after release on parole or post-prison supervision by providing, each year, 40 to 50 persons convicted of sex crimes with hormone or antiandrogen, such as medroxyprogesterone acetate, treatment.
(2) Under the program the department shall:
(a) Screen persons convicted of sex crimes who are eligible for release within six months on parole or post-prison supervision to determine their suitability for hormone or antiandrogen treatment upon release;
(b) Refer persons found most likely to benefit from hormone or antiandrogen treatment to a competent physician for medical evaluation; and
(c) Refer those persons, unless medically contraindicated after the evaluation by a competent physician, to a community physician to begin hormone or antiandrogen treatment upon their release on parole or post-prison supervision.
(3) The State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision shall require as a condition of parole or post-prison supervision hormone or antiandrogen treatment during all or a portion of parole or post-prison supervision of persons required to participate in the hormone or antiandrogen treatment program described in subsection (2) of this section.
(4) A person required to undergo a treatment program under subsection (2) of this section violates a condition of parole or post-prison supervision and is subject to sanctions if the person:
(a) Fails to cooperate in the treatment program required under subsection (2) of this section; or
(b) Takes any steroid or other chemical to counteract the treatment required under subsection (2) of this section. [1999 c.435 §1]
