CA: We pay millions for sex offender therapy at Coalinga hospital. Most patients aren’t in it

Thirteen years after Coalinga State Hospital was built to treat the state’s sexually violent predators, some of the men there say they’re more like prisoners than patients, and that the multimillion-dollar facility once criticized for its amenities is a sort of purgatory failing to rehabilitate offenders — and therefore failing the public.

    “Since 2006, there have been 179 patients “unconditionally released,” meaning they no longer meet the criteria that marks them as a sexually violent predator and can live freely as registered sex offender”

    It’s a profitable industry for many, I suppose.
