Wayne Clements, a client at the Minnesota Sex Offender Program in Moose Lake: “I believe that I needed to be punished for what I did, but the punishment should suit the crime.

But seeing as I never raped anybody, never molested any children, never attempted to rape nobody, never attempted to molest children, they took too many years of my life.”
