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?
