Thanks for the article. Concerning citing the 2003 Department of Justice study, it has been shown to have erred on the side of caution — more recent studies indicate that the recidivism rate is much lower than that including several that place it at lower than 1%.

We need to get current factual data out to the public and the justices deciding these all-important cases and not simply cite an outdated study, especially one conducted by the Justice Department although at the time it was eye-opening. There is a wealth of information over at SOSEN.
