    Great article! Just a note - the link works, but it is the Colorado Organizaton for Victim Assistance, not Coalition for Victim Assistance.

    California and Colorado's recidivism issues go beyond a no-cure scenario. Texas has seen success with its prison sex offender treatment program (according to a 2007 report by the Texas State Auditor, cited below). These two states should stop looking at the politically popular sound bites and study REAL issues underlying their criminal justice issues.
