I was very excited to be part of the PBS NewsHour special series, Broken Justice that aired Tuesday, June 28 discussing the treatment of juvenile sex offenders in the justice system.
The PBS NewsHour report covered the story of a young man who committed a sex offense as a juvenile and who now faces life-time civil commitment, even though he had served his sentence. This story takes place in Minnesota where over 700 people are held in facilities, which claim to treat adult sex offenders. At this time, though, not one person has been released and 40 people have died. Watch the story here.
