UT: Letter – Sex offender treatment worth the money

I am writing to draw attention to the fact that our state Legislature’s budget cuts are resulting in cutbacks in sex offender-specific treatment for both adult and juvenile offenders. The budget at the prison has not increased in 17 years, and this is within a time frame that the sex offender population there has been exploding. The juvenile sex offender population is mushrooming, too, without increase in funding. Full Letter to the Editor

We need to better educate our own, quoting a recidivism rate of “under 20” is letters to the editor doesn’t help our situation. Don’t perpetuate myths and fallacies… 🙁

Utah doesn’t really have any organization when it comes to offenders.

Which is more worthwhile; treating people after they do something or investing in intervention and diversion so they don’t do something?
