38. As a CPS worker in California
I have gone into homes where 290 registrants live with their spouse and children and have found nothing amiss. As long as they are actively seeking treatment around it and cooperating with probation, I don't think they should be "outed", and deserve their privacy.

I was making a general statement mostly in regards to pediphilia. These are perpetraters different from most 290 registrants that recidism is very rare and they don't respond to treatment. Those are the ones I am concerned about.
