They should be put away for good,” Jacob said.Under the law, any offender who has served their time and has successfully completed treatment can be considered for release.Doctor Glenn Lipson, a forensic psychologist who has evaluated inmates who are petitioning for release said the risk of reoffending is tied to how the inmate is managed once they’re back in the community.“We try to tighten up contact with them, the measures that we feel are going to enable them to succeed because individuals do not want to go back to prison. So, very often they’re amenable to putting in the types of structures and requirements we feel are going to assist them in avoiding reoffending,” Lipson said.In a 2009 meta-analysis, that looked at 23 separate studies, the research found that nearly 11 percent of the treated offenders committed another sexual offense.The rate was significantly higher for those who were not treated, at more than 19 percent.Yet, unlike the County supervisor, the psychologist doesn’t believe that all sex offenders are a bad risk.With proper management and continuing treatment, Dr. Lipson thinks society can achieve a balance between justice and the safety of the community.
