Once a sex offender always a sex offender?

What are your thoughts on this?

My dh's cousin had sex with her 13 year old sons best friend (also 13). She served 3 years, was released, and says she is a completely different person now. She says she knows she was wrong.

I don't understand how she don't know it was wrong before, by now she does. Dh thinks I'm judging her too harshly.

I tend to think so but if by some weird chance they aren't, I'm not willing to find out.

I don't know the exact statistics (though from what I recall it is not favorable to the offender) but I will always be suspicious and will certainly not allow any of my kids near them alone.

I still wouldn't want her around my kids.  At best, she has some impulse control problems, at worst she's a pedophile.

Some can be reformed or rehabilitated but the ones I have been around are not.  They continue to exhibit the habits of a molester even after being in jail.

 I think it's twisted that your dh is standing up for her....

I do not believe that it matters whether she "knows" or not anymore. She shouldn't be around children, period.

ETA: She's a sexual predator, not just an offender.

No, I believe they can change, although I wouldn't take that chance myself.

He was really upset with me for saying anything negative about her! It floored me! This woman chose to have sex with a child... 3 times!

No, she cannot babysit our children.
