    Re: Teacher left alone in AZ prison raped.

    I ran groups for adolescent sex offenders and adult pre-release felons. I never once feared being raped or phsycially assaulted, except every day I was there. You are locked into a room with 20-30 young men or grown men and your only defense is a panic button that sends off an alarm that alerts guards that SOMETHING is wrong in one of 8 areas. Hope and pray you were in the first area, because by the time they go to the 8th...un uh.

    The reality is I never had a problem...not even close to one. I had a great relationship with my groups. I remember my first meeting with the adult pre-release groups I got there a little early and due to my clothes and length of my hair and beard a lot of them thought I was just another inmate when we started the group. They DID give me the courtesy of explaining to me how I should respond should something bad happen (which again...never happened). The worst thing that happened to one of the female therapists is that she made the mistake of standing behind one of the sex offenders during a class and reached over his shoulder to point at his work and he turned his head and chomped down on her forearm....down to the bone.

    Not that it still wasnt the inmates fault...but you NEVER put yourself in an unseen one-on-one with anyone and you NEVER do them a 'favor' like that.

    You would be shocked to see how easily some people allow themselves to forget who they are dealing with. The number one report-able offense we had and I assume it is universal is the number of teachers, therapists, and guards that get busted in dual relationships with those people.

    sex offenders tend to be much harder to rehab than drug or economically driven offenders
    More likely she will get nothing because she violated the policies to start with. But you are quite correct about sex offenders. Most wont even admit they committed a crime.
