16,000 registered sex offenders live in the state of Alabama according to the Alabama law enforcement agency, or ALEA. There’s no arguing sexual abuse is wrong, but is chemical castration the key to ending it? Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich said it's a start, "If you have been convicted in a court of law for sexually abusing someone under the age of 13, then you should be subject to anything possible to prevent you from doing that again to a child." The law taking effect September 1st in Alabama, legalizes chemical castration for people convicted of sex crimes against a child under the age of 13, if they're granted parole.
