The Public Benefits of NEXUS

Mille Lacs News staff writer

 

One of the most fascinating observations I've made while looking into the NEXUS proposal has been the ambiguity about public benefits, statistics, and quite frankly, plans. In essence, its hard to get straight answers at the academy... no pun intended.

 

So what's the real story? Are they sex offenders or just troubled boys? Are they dangerous or not? NEXUS has been in Onamia for 17 years. Why isn't it clear who and what they are? And what good do they do our community?

 

Finally, under part d. The public benefits of the proposal section of the abatement application, we hear from NEXUS:

 

"This property will be used to accomplish a public purpose. The property will be used to provide treatment and secondary education of juvenile males ages 10 to 19 years of age who have engaged in harmful sexual behaviors or have committed sexual offenses."

THEY ARE SEX OFFENDERS!

 

"Juveniles referred to the program come from juvenile courts, county social service departments, probation officers and social workers throughout Minnesota. All of our residents have been adjudicated as sex offenders or have committed felony level sex offences."

 

THEY ARE CONVICTED SEX OFFENDERS!

 

"The Academy is a highly structured treatment resource that serves as an alternative to incarceration for sex offenders. It gives juvenile court judges the option of rehabilitating those juvenile offenders who appear amenable to treatment and removes them from communities in which they would continue to pose a risk."

 

THEY ARE DANGEROUS CONVICTED SEX OFFENDERS!

 

"If programs such as this did not exist, courts would have limited options resulting in more adolescents remaining a danger in their communities or serving time in detention or corrections programs not suited to their individual treatment needs."

 

THEY ARE DANGEROUS CONVICTED SEX OFFENDERS WHO HAVE BEEN DUMPED ON OUR COMMUNITY LIKE NUCLEAR WASTE!!!

 

"The Academy's treatment approach addresses the source of the adolescent's behavior problems and dramatically reduces the likelihood of future victims and the accompanying cost of adult incarceration."

 

Okay, okay. We finally can see that they are indeed dangerous convicted sex offenders who have been placed in our community instead of being sent to jail. But what in the world is the benefit to our public? Sure we keep other counties safer by having their criminals here. But what good does this do our own community???

Where is OUR PUBLIC BENEFIT???

The next paragraph has nothing to do with our public benefit either. It just talks up it's program. Please be advised that there are many studies out there with differing results. Some researchers say that there is no way to "cure" sex offenders. Some say that programs help. There seems no definitive answer.

 

"Ms. Jill Gilgen at the University of Minnesota did a study on adult sex offenders in our state prison system and found that 70% of sex offender prisoners started their sexual offending as a juvenile. This study points to the importance of treating juveniles as soon as their problems can be identified, not only because it is financially more cost effective, but because it is more cost effective in terms of the human heartache and toll on victims and families. Ongoing follow-up studies of Mille Lacs Academy graduates indicate that fewer than 2 % of its residents re-offend during the three year follow up period."

 

I cannot find any information on Ms. Jill Gilgen's supposed study on adult sex offenders in prison. Was she a student at the University of Minnesota? Was this an undergraduate paper or perhaps her masters' thesis? Likewise, where can we find the ongoing follow-up studies on Mille Lacs Academy? There are no sources listed for these references.

 

To be continued...

Meet Paul

The court has labeled Paul as a "sexually dangerous person". He is a "sexual psychopath". He is a Level III offender. He has many, many victims- both male and female.

Paul used to be my neighbor at Mille Lacs Academy in Onamia.

Jim D'Angelo said these "boys" aren't dangerous.

John Varner said these "boys" aren't violent.

Jerome Kryzer said these "boys" aren't sex offenders.

Steve Bye said, "They're well-behaved in church."

We've been told that these "boys" don't "escape", they just get confused and sometimes walk away.

Last year Paul escaped from St. Peter with three other inmates. Other rapists, dangerous offenders. Fortunately they were caught. Paul is currently incarcerated.

One of the fourteen year old girls that Paul raped wants to kill herself.

Paul threatened to kill many victims, including a seven year old boy he forced into oral sex.

Paul has no remorse.

I don't want anyone like Paul in my neighborhood.

Do you?

* Paul is due to be released in January 2008 after serving a 27 month sentence.
