(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – A health care worker from Idaho Falls wants tougher punishments for sex offenders. Tara Demkowicz, a pediatric forensic nurse, says many of those accused of sexually abusing children never go to trial, and those that do are often behind bars for only a few months. Demkowicz says the state should consider revising its penal code to provide minimum sentences for sex offenders, rather than sending them to the rider program. District Judge Jon Shinderling says nearly half of those sent to the rider program will end up back in prison.
