Chris Hansen Opposes Chemical Castration for Predators, Suggests Therapy Instead

0:00

Chris Hansen, host of To Catch a Predator, opposes chemical castration for sexual predators, advocating for therapy instead.

Hansen spoke to TMZ about his concerns over a recent Louisiana bill allowing judges to sentence sex offenders to medical castration. He doubts the bill will withstand court scrutiny.

Despite having no legal training, Hansen suggests harsher prison sentences and psychotherapy as better alternatives.

“I receive messages on my podcast from predators who seek therapy for their attraction to children and refrain from acting on it,” he told TMZ. “They know it’s wrong, but therapy helps them manage their urges.”

Hansen also questioned the effectiveness of probation and sex offender registration in deterring future crimes but did not speculate further.
