Former Gov. George Pataki confided yesterday that his push to have convicted sex offenders locked up in psych wards after they’d served their jail time was jump-started by an incident in which his own “family was exposed” to such a perv.Defending himself in Manhattan federal court against a suit challenging the incarcerations, Pataki recalled how he, his wife and his youngest son were walking with neighbors and other young children along a trail at Hudson Highlands State Park in “1995 or 1996.”Pataki said he noticed a suspicious man “who would stand and walk right next to us and the kids.” He said he asked state troopers on detail guarding him to check the man out and learned he had been convicted of “sexual crimes in the Rochester area.”“My family was fine,” Pataki told a jury. “We had state troopers, but it just made me more aware of the horrors of those crimes.”Pataki was on the stand defending himself in a lawsuit filed by five convicted sex offenders and the estate of a sixth seeking $10 million each over his controversial 2005 decision to sidestep recalcitrant state lawmakers and order “civil confinement” of more than 100 convicted sex offenders to psychiatric centers.A state court ruled that the practice was illegal a year later
