This interview below deals with Jill Blackstone a women who was groomed and sexually abused by her tennis coach. Jake Goldenflame provides his thoughts.
My question is really, can sex offenders be fully rehabilitated? It is my opinion that the first steps are when they are able to take responsiblity and acknowledge what they have done. Not only to a select group of people or their church but to the person they abused face to face. No doubt this man is helping allot of people.
