What punishment does Karla Homolka deserve?

According to a Canadian newspaper, "Three in four Canadians believe convicted sex killer Karla Homolka continues to pose a potential threat to the general public, just weeks before she is due to be released after having served 12 years in jail." This is just another example of the kinds of sex-crime-related laws we're seeing pop up in the U.S. And while, personally, I don't think there are punishments long and painful enough for rapists, murderers and child molesters... do we think there's a constitutional problem (different from, but not unlike, double-jeopardy) when we extend sentences beyond what judges intended? Especially in cases where that sentence was the result of a plea-bargain?
