On March 11, Matthew Aaron Stites, 25, will become a free man. But it won't look a lot like the freedom most of us know.

The about-to-be-released level 3 sex offender will be living at the Wadena County Jail, will have his comings-and-goings restricted, and will be constantly monitored by four Department of Corrections agents and local law enforcement, right down to GPS tracking via an ankle bracelet.
