Karen James with Johneen Manno, an Oregon Certified Sex Offender Clinical Therapist, who specializes in the treatment of adjudicated, mandated adult males and females who have been convicted of a sexual offense.

According to the Oregon State Police, there are over 19,000 registered sex offenders in Oregon.  Of these, 4% are highest risk to reoffend and are posted to the state police website. Many people convicted of a sexual offense want to change their behaviors and seek treatment in our communities.

Cell Blocks

Carlos Chavez interviews one of Chicago Reporter’s investigative journalists, Angela Caputo on her recent article, called “Cell Blocks.” They talk about her recent article on the topic of Chicago’s highest incarcerated West side community.

Caputo tapped into Cook County Clerk of the Circuit Court’s database paired with a Geographic Information Systems file created by the Chicago Department of Innovation and Technology to research convicted felony cases and prison sentences per census block in the city of Chicago. Her results exposed some fascinating facts that may have many of us scratching our heads about the heavy handed philosophy behind that last few decades of mass incarceration and the war on drugs.
