Amy is a local prosecutor who speaks regularly at the John School program. She has seen over 7,000 johns in the program since 1995 when it was launched.
The re-arrest rate has fallen sharply and remains more than 30% lower than it was 10 years ago. Amy offers first time offenders a special deal; if they plead guilty, pay a $250 fee and complete the course without re-offending, their charge can be dismissed after a year. If she sees them again, she guarantees jail time.
