AA Member and violent sex offender Jafford Smith, is on the run after attending a local AA meeting on Main St in Montana. It is not an uncommon practice to allow prisoners to leave prison or pre-release centers to go into the general public to attend AA meetings. This is also how prisoners escape, just like Jafford Smith did. It is ridiculious to send violent sex offenders into the community without any warning to people attending the AA meetings! Of course do not forget that AA supports this practice. A person attending might not be aware of the violent felons sitting next to them at an AA/NA meeting .
