Paedophiles [sic] are taken for walks in Leeds
"Circles volunteer Nick with West Yorkshire co-ordinator Lisa Tedstill.
An initiative that sees normal [ah] members of the public socialising with the likes [ah] of convicted paedophiles [sic] and rapists is being run in Leeds for the first time. Crime reporter Sam Casey found out how Circles of Support and Accountability works.
ON the first floor of a city centre office building in Leeds, self-confessed paedophile and sex addict Jack is talking about how he is trying to keep control of “problematic thoughts”.
“When I used to walk through town and I’d see an attractive woman, I would completely fixate on her and try and capture a mental image of her,” he says.
“Now I’m able to glance at her and then concentrate on something else.”
