Nicole Pittman joins KQED Forum alongside Dr. Tom Tobin, vice-chair of the California Sex Offender Management Board, to discuss the ways in which youth and adult sexual offenses differ and why kids should not be placed on registries.

Facilitated by host Rachael Myrow, Tobin and Pittman engage with callers from the community and explain how including children on sex offender registries is contrary to scientific research on child development and is in direct conflict with the philosophy of juvenile justice. Punishing children for life is not only harmful, but it’s “bad policy,” as Dr. Tobin explains.
