State Officials Being Slapped With Lawsuit By Rapist

(Honolulu, HI) -- Correction officials in Hawaii are being slapped with a lawsuit by a rapist over a work furlough program. The "Star Advertiser" reports the lawsuit was filed for John Freudenberg by his attorney earlier this week. The lawsuit claims for the last 18 years the Hawaii Paroling Authority has recommended he work for the program. Freudenberg alleges that he has been denied entry into the program on many occasions by the head of the Corrections Division and the director of the state's Department of Public Safety. Freudenberg pleaded guilty to multiple charges including rape, sodomy and sexual abuse in 1983.
