The Complicated Treatment Of Sex Offenders

Nov 25, 2013

Jail time is frequently the end result for rapists and child molesters. However, groups like the Larned State Hospital feel that sex offenders are often victims of abuse  and need outside help.

Treatment programs have been designed to reduce the risk of re-offending, but does treatment work well enough to keep communities safe? What if a sex offender cannot be rehabilitated? Should we keep them “in treatment” forever even after their jail term has expired?

On Monday's Central Standard, host Susan Wilson examines the complicated world of sex offender justice.
