Sexual Predators Hidden in Federal Witness Protection Program, Report Finds

Sexual Predators Hidden in Federal Witness Protection Program, Report FindsThe U.S. government’s Witness Protection Program provides new identities and new communities for federal witnesses who may be at risk. There are now at least four sex offenders in the program who have received a new name and a new home, “but the Department of Justice did not use adequate safeguards to protect and notify the public and law enforcement about the risk posed,” according to a new DOJ Inspector General report released today. The Department of Justice Inspector General today released a scathing, and heavily redacted report, criticizing the Federal Witness Protection program for “not taking sufficient steps to mitigate threats posed” by sex offenders in the program, as well as sex offenders recently released from the program. “We believe that the DOJ generally did not use adequate safeguards to protect and notify the public and law enforcement about the risk posed by sex offender participants in the Program.” the report states.
