Obviously, Dennis Rader will never get out of prison. Still, it doesn’t seem right that his criminal record won’t account for the sexual offenses of which he’s guilty, or for his vicious attack on Kevin Bright, who survived. The statute of limitations had expired on all of his crimes save murder. To its credit, the Legislature recently extended the statute of limitations on most felonies and misdemeanors to five years, from what had been two years. But is that really long enough, given the high-tech tools that investigators now have?
