Congress enacted the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (“the Adam Walsh Act”) with the aim of “protect[ing] children from sexual exploitation and violent crime.” Among other measures, the Act creates a National Sex Offender Registry, establishes a post-conviction civil commitment scheme, increases punishments for a variety of federal crimes against children, and strengthens existing child pornography prohibitions. The scope of this note is limited to an analysis of the commitment portion of the Act (“Commitment Provision”). This provision authorizes the federal government to civilly commit, in a federal facility, any “sexually dangerous” person “in the custody” of the Bureau of Prisons – even after that person has completed his entire prison sentence.
