Washington State has a facility for convicted violent sex offenders called the Special Commitment Center on McNeil Island near Tacoma.  Sex offenders Hank Pollock, 47, and  Keith “Rebecca” Elmore, 57, recently got married at the prison.  The friendship between Pollock and Elmore reaches back a decade to when Pollock moved to the SCC. Keith “Rebecca” Elmore was already there after pleading guilty in 1995 in Clark County to second-degree kidnapping and second-degree assault with sexual motivation. When Elmore petitioned to be released in 1999, the state Attorney General’s Office persuaded the judge to deny it based on Elmore’s “sexually-motivated cannibalistic fantasies.” Pollock, who changed his name from Andrew Drescher in 2002, was convicted of five counts of sex crimes against children in Kitsap and Thurston counties from 1987 to 1993. He was committed to the SCC for being a repeat sex offender.
