In 1998, Colorado established a life-time-of- supervision law for sex offenders. Since then only two convicted sex offenders have been paroled. These inmates are also given therapy, not with the hope of curing them, but instead with the goal to teach them how to manage their behavior. When an offender goes on parole he does so with the recommendation of his therapist. In 2005 the Colorado Department of Corrections decided that the public had the right to know sex offenders' progress which includes their therapists' recommendations.
