Associated Press Release
ARCADIA, Fla. (AP) -- Sexual abuse survivor Lauren Book is hoping to learn how to prevent abuse from the people who commit it.
Book, who was raped and abused by a nanny as a child, now advocates for victims and seeks ways to prevent abuse. Her mission took her to the Florida Civil Commitment Center on Saturday -- the place where the state's most dangerous sex offenders are held after they finish their prison sentences.
Book met with an offender, who told her about the treatment process that attempts to safely return offenders to society. She was also told the men at the center can't be cured, but can be taught not to reoffend.
While she found the visit helpful, she also left skeptical.
