WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 1950 RLYTIIEVILLE (AHK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Reports Made On Crime Curb Sex Offenders May Be Held in Hospital Rather than Prison By Howard W. Bl»kesle« Associated Press Science Editor DETROIT, May 3. (AP, — The first official answer whether doctors can curb sex crimes better than prisons was given to the American Jsychiatric Association today. |F The answer comes from Washington, D.C., where a new law is scndinc sex offenders lo St. Eli7a- beth's Hospital to remain until the superintendent says they are, safe to release. This experiment holds that sex offenders are sick persons rather than criminals. The Washington report indicates that the chances are fairly good, but that cures probably will be slow and exnenslve, The American P'ychiatric Association is interested because similar experiments recently h»c been cna'cted into law in New York State, California and Canada. And are under consideration in other American communities. The reoort is by Drs. Bernard A. Crmnt. Milton Mcltzfr and Francis J. Tartagllno of St. Elizauet'.i's. "Not Insane" The District oi Columbia legislation says the persons lo be confined are "not insane." They ure men whose repeated sex misconduct convinces n judge they are likely to repent. Rapists lire not included. St. Elizabeth's has 24 of these men. None has been released although some been there for more than a year. Twenty-five pel- cent are improved. The first important medical finding Is that the 24 suffer from five different kinds of mental troubles, all ordinary. There Is no Am that a sex offender has any JHfiTerent phobias than other people. Mental Troubles The five are mental troubles due to diseases, defective minds, compulsive neuroses—feelings there is something you just have to do no matter what- the cost—nnd split personalities and hysteria. The principal treatments are to keep these men fully occupied all day. They work in shops, at art, drama, athletic games, editing a newspaper, playing in a band, seeing movies and television. Six have improved enough to be transferred from restraint wards lo open wards where they have freedom to attend hospital partie. 1 !. No specific treatment has been discovered. The report says there will be special treatments and that these will require trained personel Personnel so trained does not now exist. No predictions are made or how long it may take to cure i sex offender.
