MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A three-judge panel has cleared a serial rapist for conditional release from the Minnesota Sex Offender Program.
    
Thomas R. Duvall has spent the past 30 years locked up for the violent rapes of teenage girls in the 1970s and 1980s.
    
The Star Tribune reports that a panel of judges Monday approved Duvall's provisional discharge, saying his progress in treatment outweighs his diagnosis as a sexual sadist.
    
Under his proposed discharge plan, Duvall will live under intensive supervision in a facility operated by Zumbro House, which provides community housing to sex offenders, and will not be allowed to leave unless accompanied by staff.
    
Duvall's case sparked a firestorm four years ago when MSOP staffers recommended his conditional release. Attorney General Lori Swanson and other officials objected, and Duvall withdrew his petition.
