NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Former New York Gov. George Pataki testified Tuesday about how more than 100 sex offenders came to be institutionalized after they finished their prison sentences.
Pataki testified in Manhattan federal court. Six convicted sex offenders have sued him and the state.
As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, a cool but at time frustrated Pataki told a lawyer for the plaintiffs that he never ordered the program that sent them to psychiatric facilities after their prison terms were up, despite a press release from his office saying he did.
