Treating Sex Offenders — First in a series

The Mt. Pleasant Correctional Facility houses up to 500 sex offenders at a time, but treatment programs only have space for about 150 prisoners. The recent abduction of two girls from Dayton, Iowa led to questions about how sex offenders are treated and evaluated in prison. Michael Klunder, who allegedly abducted the two girls before committing suicide, was a convicted sex offender who’d served nearly two decades in prison.
