Coe transferred to special commitment center on McNeil Island

SPOKANE, Wash.- South Hill Rapist Kevin Coe has been transferred to a 
special commitment center at McNeil Island instead of the Spokane County 
Jail.  He left Spokane early Friday morning and arrived safely at noon.  A 
judge listened to arguments on behalf of Coe and granted him the transfer. 
Coe will be moved back to Spokane County in time for a probable cause 
hearing, in about 7 weeks.

Coe's attorney sought - and were granted - a delay in the hearing on whether 
to civilly commit him beyond his 25-year sentence for rape.  That hearing 
will now take place no October 30th.  Prosecutors did not object to the 
delay, but said they would not be willing to wait any longer.  Coe's lawyer 
said he needed more time to sift through the mounds of documents related to 
his client's case.

Does this not sound like Sitler being allowed to go outside the jail for 
"treatment" until his parole in May 2007?  When did things change to where 
the criminal is allowed to dictate his sentence or place of incarceration?
