A State Supreme Court ruling apparently means 26 people convicted as sexual predators will have new trials and 35 others awaiting trials will be tried under new procedures. The Court has ruled juries that found two men to be violent sexual predators, and ordered them into state custody, got erroneous instructions from the judges in the case. The Court says juries must be told they have to find a person has a mental abnormality that causes “serious difficulty in controlling behavior.” The 26 cases affected by the ruling apparently did not include those instructions.
