Suspect Confesses to More Sex Crimes; Inman's Long Rap Sheet Typical


Byline: Joyce Howard Price, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

According to the Oregon-based Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA), a group that says treatment of sex offenders does not replace a criminal justice response, the research literature generally indicates that recidivism rates for untreated sex offenders who primarily target children ranges from 10 percent to 40 percent. …
