A senior manager in Minnesota's sex-offender treatment program was reprimanded last summer for unprofessional behavior that put the program's health operations in disarray, according to a sternly worded discipline letter issued by the state Department of Human Services.
Scott G. Sutton, health services director for the Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP), was also investigated for failing to follow nursing standards and creating a hostile work environment.
The letter did not detail Sutton's actions but said the episode, which has not been disclosed until now, had a "negative impact on the MSOP program,'' mainly because his decisions resulted in a lack of coordination in operating the program's health services.
As health director, Sutton oversees day-to-day care-giving for the program's 670 patients, who are under indefinite court commitment at secure facilities in Moose Lake and St. Peter.
