ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The release of a man convicted on three separate occasions of sexually assaulting teenage girls is being opposed by the state of Minnesota.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1S78iC0 ) reported Monday that Minnesota Human Services Commissioner Emily Johnson Piper has formally appealed a state review board’s decision in March to grant provisional discharge to 60-year-old Thomas Duvall from the state’s sex offender program. His release is also being opposed by the Hennepin County attorney’s office.

Duvall was civilly committed in 1991. He dropped a petition for provisional discharge in 2014, after the state human services commissioner and assistant Hennepin County attorney filed letters to the court saying they opposed his provisional discharge.
