Each Maryland law relating to sex offenses has standard and enhanced penalties. The legislature attempted to enhance penalties for people who are repeat offenders and/or who engage in heinous acts.
Aside from extremely tough prison and probation terms, the Maryland legislature determined that "sexual predators" have higher registration requirements. A person who is deemed a predator is thought to be a risk for committing a subsequent sexually violent offense based on the facts shown in prior cases and actions. When someone is labeled as a sexual predator, they are deemed to be deemed to be an extreme amount of hoops to stay out.
Over the last 10 years, the Maryland legislature has enhanced penalties for all sexual crimes, including for sexual predators. A sexual predator can be sentenced via any one of the Maryland sex offense statutes. The sole purpose is not to rehabilitate but to protect society and the community from these individuals. The thought process is not rehabilitation as much as it is for simple protection.
