(St. Paul, MN) -- The state will review the case of convicted sex offender Eric Terhaar, who has been behind bars since 2009. A federal judge ordered an expedited review of Terhaar yesterday as the constitutionality of the state's sex offender treatment program remains under investigation. The 24-year-old committed his crimes before the age of 15 and has never been convicted of a crime as an adult. Minnesota law allows for sex offenders to be jailed indefinitely, even after their sentences have been completed.
