- Program Description
This program investigates the epidemic of sexual assault and examines Washington's desperate solution to the problem - to keep the offenders locked up until they are judged to be no longer a danger. Through interviews with Westley Allan Dodd (arrested for murder of three young boys in 1989,) other sexual offenders and their families, therapists, and treatment specialists, this program looks for answers to the questions: How did these men become this way? How do we stop them? And how will we know when they're safe?
