£100million failure – Liz Truss buried report!

The scandal of the sex crime ‘cure’ hubs: £100million prison programme to treat paedophiles and rapists INCREASED reoffending rates – and this minister buried the report

  • Sex Offender Treatment Programme is psychological group-therapy course
  • Believed to have cost taxpayers over £100 million since it was set up in 1991 
  • Prisoners who take the rehabilitation courses are at least 25 per cent more likely to be convicted of further sex crimes than those who do not 
  • Paedophiles convicted of attacking children are especially likely to offend again 

The Government is hiding a devastating report that shows rehabilitation courses taken by thousands of jailed rapists and paedophiles make them more dangerous once they are released.

According to the study, prisoners who take the courses are at least 25 per cent more likely to be convicted of further sex crimes than those who do not, suggesting that the sessions may have created hundreds of extra victims.

The controversial Sex Offender Treatment Programme (SOTP), a six-month psychological group-therapy course, is believed to have cost taxpayers well over £100 million since it was set up in 1991.

One Response to £100million failure – Liz Truss buried report!

  1. Alex says:

    This is hardly a story. Of course the pool of prisoners who do not take SOTP will have a lower rate of reoffending since it is those most likely to reoffend who are put on the course in the first place. A prisoner marked as low risk on OASys is (rightly) unlikely to ever be placed on the course. The real problem raised in this article is how those running such courses are not qualified to do so.
