ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The St. Paul Police Department will hold a public meeting Wednesday on the upcoming release of a man from the Minnesota Sex Offender Program.

Fifty-year-old Oliver Lenell Dority would be just the fourth person in the program’s more than 20-year history to be provisionally released. Dority was sent to prison in 1995 after pleading guilty to raping two women. He was civilly committed to the program in 2009.

His attorney, Mary Huot, tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/1Q3p5Rk ) that Dority was a diligent participant in treatment and never got sent back to a lower level for infractions. She says he’ll be kept under intensive supervision at a residential facility in St. Paul’s Summit-University neighborhood.

The state is appealing a federal judge’s ruling that the program is unconstitutional.
