Kerns said his records show Earls is set to be released Sept. 24. Miller has said that Earls will have to register as a sex offender every six months for the rest of his life and he won’t be able to live in restricted areas, including areas near schools, day care centers and parks. Earls also will be monitored by the state Department of Probation and Parole, Miller said. "We’re going to supervise him for 19 years,” said Afton Smith, team supervisor at the District 3 Probation and Parole offices in McAlester. "He will be in the office once a month to visit with a probation officer, possibly twice a month for the first six months,” Smith said. "That gives us time to get all of his needs assessed and find out what problem areas he has. "We’ll also see him in the field at least once a month, at his residence or where he’s working.” Earls won’t wear an electronic monitoring device because an order wasn’t included in the judgment, Smith said. Smith said she is well aware of the attention the case has received. "It’s been in the paper and on national TV,” Smith said. "We’ll keep an eye on him.”
