Louisiana legislators approve surgical castration for those guilty of sexual crimes against children

Baton Rouge – Louisiana judges could order the surgical castration of people convicted of sex crimes against minors, under a bill approved Monday by the state legislature. If Republican Gov. Jeff Landry signs it into law, the state would apparently be the first with such a punishment.

Louisiana lawmakers passed a bill that would give judges the option of ordering surgical castration after a person has been convicted of certain aggravated sex crimes — such as rape, incest and abuse — against a child under the age of 18. 13 years.

A handful of states — including California, Florida and Texas — currently have laws allowing chemical castration. In some of those states, offenders can opt for the surgical procedure if they prefer. But the National Conference of State Legislatures said it is not aware of any state allowing a judge to impose surgical castration.
