In Episode 100 David Talks to legal professor and defense lawyer Heather Ellis Cucolo about sexual offenses. While it might be difficult for many people to feel any sympathy for people on US sex crimes registers, Cucolo points out that the overboard definition of sex crimes can lead to people being punished for sex crimes they might commit in the future, even though they haven’t yet, and sentences that are clearly too long, and can even lead to life imprisonment through the so-called Civil Confinement procedures, that are supposed to treat people who are not ready to be released at the end of their sentences, but actually just ends up warehousing them for life.  In Minnesota, she points out, not a single person has ever been released from Civil Confinement. Find out more about Cucolo’s work at: (Mental Disability Law and Policy Associates).

Following the interview David discusses other legal and medical issues. The list of articles cited is here:
