Episode 13: Michael St. Martin, Civilly Committed for 18 Years

Michael St. Martin, 62, who has been civilly committed for the past 18 years, is a "detainee" at Coalinga State Hospital, where he was sent in 2006, after serving 10 years in prison. He has been designated a "sexually violent predator" or SVP, and will likely spend the rest of his natural life civilly committed there. At Coalinga, only 36% of the detainees are participating in treatment programs, and St. Martin is one of the patients not participating in treatment. He says he believes in treatment, but that the system at the hospital, where he has been since 2006 after serving 10 years in prison for child molestation charges, is flawed. “The bottom line is, there is no consistency with treatment,” St. Martin said. “All of public safety is an important factor, don’t get me wrong. But the state has taken the community’s money and they’re not producing that. It’s unconscionable what they’ve done. The Supreme Court ruled that the state has to provide treatment — they didn’t sa...

Often, however, the measures we take to combat child sexual abuse (CSA) are less effective than they should be, because they are driven by emotion rather than evidence. In striving to protect children from abuse, we may end up harming them and others. Prostasia Foundation addresses this problem by… helping to fund sound scientific research on CSA prevention.engaging with diverse stakeholders whose voices are not normally heard.addressing the human rights impacts of child protection laws and policies.communicating the results of our research and engagement to policymakers, platforms, and the public.

Episode 9: Gail Colletta - President, Florida Action Committee

In this episode, we interview the President of Florida Actiona Committee, Gail Colletta. From the Florida Action Committe website: The purpose of Florida Action Committee is to educate the media, our legislators and the public with the facts surrounding Sex Offender Issues. Our concern is for every citizen of Florida to enjoy a safer environment, particularly our children. Today people have access to a world of information through the media, internet and newspapers.

Episode 8: Rachel Barkow - NYU Law Professor & Author of "Prisoners of Politics"

Rachel Barkow, the author of "Prisoner of Politics: Breaking the Cycle of Mass Incarceration," explains how dangerous it is to base criminal justice policy on the whims of the electorate, which puts judges, sheriffs, and politicians in office. Instead, she argues for an institutional shift toward data and expertise, following the model used to set food and workplace safety rules. America’s criminal justice policy reflects irrational fears stoked by politicians seeking to win election. A preeminent legal scholar argues that reform guided by evidence, not politics and emotions, will reduce crime and reverse mass incarceration. The United States has the world’s highest rate of incarceration, a form of punishment that ruins lives and makes a return to prison more likely. As awful as that truth is for individuals and their families, its social consequences—recycling offenders through an overwhelmed criminal justice system, ever-mounting costs, unequal treatment before the law, and a g...

Episode 7: Jason's Story - From the Registry to Synagogue President to Advocate

Jason is on the registry in Connecticut for an offense he committed in 2008. He has spent the decade since his arrest working to make his criminal record a footnote, rather than the story that defines him. In addition to his employment full-time in an unrelated field, Jason devotes his free-time to giving back to the community in several ways. One of his volunteer activities included becoming President of his synagogue. In 2019, he joined registry advocacy efforts. He created the website http://endtheregistry.com to offer support to registrants, friends and families and he can be found tweeting as @endtheregistry. Most importantly, he reports having wonderful relationships with his fiancé, family and friends that are more meaningful and are more genuine than those prior to arrest.
