Psychologists who treat sexual offenders and abuse victims look at the accusations made against Jerry Sandusky and see an all-too-typical behavior pattern.
A Virginia legislator is renewing his push to allow castration of sex offenders as an alternative to the increasing costs of detaining and treating them after they've served their prison sentence.
