Extremely frustrating. I do feel that I agree with the data about recidivism of juveniles with and without specialized treatment. I think the thing that's important to remember is adolescents sexual offenders have a whole different set of needs and concerns. It's about so much more than just the offense and often times a strictly punitive outcome doesn't work as well.

Our particular program is recidivism rate is 3% after treatment and 15 % without it. Those are extremely low numbers but still not zero, so even with treatment some youths still re-offend. I feel finding out the underlying causation is a key point. 

That's the thing. Low recidivism rates to begin with but big consequences for recidivism (versus youth charged, say, with vandalism). The cost-benefit analysis tips heavily in favor of intervention even though no intervention is perfect. IME the specialized treatment rarely succeeds without the teeth of probation because of the nature of the family dynamics. Most are defensive (if not denying) and oversight/coercion/legal pressure on the family system is a key part to the intervention. 

Basically there is a small window of time where specialized treatment is likely to be effective. I have seen attorneys delay cases in an effort to show the judge---see my client is doing just fine out of custody. He wants to join the military! Look at the AP course he enrolled in!

It is very frustrating when this approach is taken with the juvenile sex offenders because the clock is ticking.

Hey, I'm certainly not afraid to give it a shot. 😜

I'm so happy my MASH/ A-Team fanfics were lost in the realms of Mary Suetopia in the years pre-PC.

So, Josh went into Seagoville on June 27. According to the guidelines online (may not be current), his immediate family could visit right away and others (like clergy, thinking TFDW) after clearing the vistor's list, which would take about 30 days.  Has Anna posted anything anywhere about visting her "bestie"? Supporting her headship in his season of tribulation?

Are visiting lists made public or will we have to internet sleuth ?

Not sure but I’m impressed we know so little. Do we even know if Anna and the kids are still in Texas?

No. Some of the kids were pictured at Fern and Boob's joint birthday party in mid July, IIRC. Definitely after they were in TX for Vacation Bible School.

I can't imagine visiting lists are public.  Even though inmates are in prison, they deserve some privacy and the workload on the prisons to provide that information would be oppressive.

And really, is it any of our business if/when Anna visits?

I find both Josh and Anna to be incredibly boring. They're both toxic pieces of shit that are content to stay in their positions, rather than better themselves and change.

There won’t be many updates for the next 12 years, and I couldn’t be happier

It's absolutely glorious. 

Today, Josh Duggar is in prison. He cannot physically molest any children, and he cannot seek out media depicting the same.  It'll be that way today, and tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that....

Wasn't Josh going to appeal?

Still pending. He requested a third extension to file the appeal brief earlier this month. Deadline is now sometime next week. 

Creative writing block on part of his attorneys is my guess.

Appeals are procedural, correct? Meaning, it’s not a rehashing of the facts of the case—now considered true—but an argument that the court messed up. I am curious as to what the legal team will argue.

Yes, there won't be a new trial or evidence presented. We don't know what the legal team will come up with, but usually the defense will focus on legal rulings or procedural errors they allege were prejudicial to the defendant.

Anyone else have the experience of just going about your day, doing routine things, and then all of a sudden think, "Holy shit, Josh Duggar is sitting in prison right now"? I mean, obviously it's not news, but every once in awhile it pops into my head and I just can't believe how far Smuggar has fallen.

Yup. But usually it comes out as "Oh yea..." Looks like Anna may not be getting the kind of attention she wants these days, if she's deleted her instagram.

If only this was to prelude a divorce announcement but I don’t have that much faith in Anna.

Based off the thread title, are Anna and the kids living TX? Are they residing in the PT’s RV?

I know it's unlikely, but I hope at least it's her own decision. The thought of some headship - her own or the substitute one - telling her to go offline is haunting me. Isolation is never good.

I’m glad she deleted it. Give your kids some much needed privacy Anna. It’s bad enough the whole world knows what their father did.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
