Civil Escape is a personal account by a survivor of California's 1996 civil commitment law for sex offenders. Using a fraudulent treat and release scheme the program has warehoused over a thousand men and women under the ruse of therapy. After 16 years in forced therapy the author was released after two concurring psychologists found that he no longer met criteria. Civil Escape is a thorough investigation and insight into sex offender treatment, judicial corruption, and therapy malfeasance. The book peels back the layers of deceit and the behind-the-scenes immoral conduct by California counties to keep men incarcerated for life despite the premise of therapy completion.

Are these offenders really sexually violent predators? Discover the lies of a system out of control and the political football that no one wishes to address.

Take a closer look and find out who these men and women are, and then examine your own human nature and sexual more
