The Complicated Treatment Of Sex Offenders
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?
