CHAPTER ELEVEN: Mentalization based therapy (MBT) and other psychoanalytic treatment

Timothy Keogh Karnac Books ePub

“The self and its boundaries are at the heart of philosophical speculation on human nature, and the sense of self and its counterpart, the sense of other, are universal phenomena that profoundly influence all our social experience”

(Stern, 1985, p. 5)

The psychological profiles of psychopathic and affect-hungry juvenile sex offenders discussed in Chapter Eleven can be differentiated on the basis of their level of psychopathology, psychopathy, and their capacity for attachment and relatedness. In turn, these differences are reflected in their psychic structure and object relation configurations and associated psychological defences. These underpin distinct motivations reflected in different offence types. This has important implications for the type of psychological interventions selected for sub-groups of juvenile sex offenders.

Treatment and treatment outcome with juvenile sex offenders

The contemporary psychological interventions invoked with juvenile sex offenders have been predominantly cognitive–behavioural and skill-based approaches. Of these multi-systemic therapy (MST), which has socio-ecological components and works with different systems with which the juvenile sex offender comes into contact, has been the most successful (Henggeler&Borduin, 1995; Henggeler, Schoenwald, Borduin, Rowland,&Cunningham, 1998). All these approaches have tended to regard juvenile sex offenders as a homogenous group with the same treatment needs. The average effect size for treatment approaches with juvenile sex offenders overall has been estimated at 0.43, with a lack of superiority for cognitive–behavioural interventions found. Meta-analytic reviews of treatment outcomes for juvenile sex offenders have noted that a confounding variable concerning effect sizes might be the “one size fits all” approach to treatment (Reitzel&Carbonell, 2006).

19. The Northrup Trial

The Northrup Trial

“This was a monster that needed taking care of.”

—Mike Freeman, McLennan County Assistant District Attorney

On May 18, 1992, a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) Internal Affairs Investigator named John Moriarty called APD Detective Sonya Urubek at her office. Moriarty told her that he was compiling a timeline of Kenneth McDuff’s known whereabouts from the time he first entered prison in 1965 to the present. Other than informal meetings among officers, this was the first serious attempt to compile data from several law enforcement jurisdictions into a central location. The synopsis Moriarty compiled became a godsend for the dozens of detectives investigating McDuff, allowing them to safely eliminate McDuff as a suspect in a number of pending murders, rapes, and abductions.1

John Moriarty and TDCJ had been brought into the case because McDuff was an ex-con on parole. John was originally from the South Bronx in New York, but he fit in very well with the Texas posse informally assembled to track down McDuff. John Aycock, a quintessential Texas lawman, called Moriarty “a cop’s cop.” The information he supplied the posse about McDuff’s prison career greatly assisted in efforts to understand and profile the fugitive. He also had vast experience dealing with the families of ex-cons, and conducted masterful interviews with Addie and J. A. McDuff.

Things Fall Apart

“Cops are parked outside and we went and removed the junk, eh.”

— Jeff DaSilva

In a big building on an industrial strip in St. Catharines, near Lake Ontario and a Canadian Tire outlet, Glenn Day did some construction work at a Dolic-funded grow op. The property was owned by a corporation controlled by Vincent DeRosa, and his brother Bob, who falsely claimed to co-own it, acted as landlord. The place was called Ssonix, after a waste-disposal company that rented most of the building. Bob had once owned the waste-disposal company, but, because of financial difficulties, had sold it to Vincent.

Soon after making rental arrangements with Bob DeRosa, Dolic, Freeman, DaSilva and Day went to St. Catharines, where Dolic explained what kind of grow up he wanted built. Freeman, who lived in nearby Niagara Falls with his wife and four daughters, was the “main guy on-site,” playing the same role at Ssonix that Robert Bleich had played at Molson. Unlike at the Molson plant, where electricity was paid for, DaSilva installed an electrical bypass at Ssonix and the plants fed on stolen power.

11. Indictments

Corey Recko University of North Texas Press PDF



Garrett and Perry began the next month working on Luis Herrera

(a different Herrera than was with the search party) after they received information that he might know where the bodies were, but this led to nothing.1

Not much progress was made in the investigation or the search for the bodies over the next two years. Fall, meanwhile, was able to have the cattle rustling indictments Fountain had brought against

Lee and McNew dropped.2

Pat Garrett had to run in the fall elections of 1896 in order to keep the office of sheriff. Garrett was a loyal, lifelong Democrat, but owed his position to the Republicans. Torn, Garrett decided to run as an

Independent and then registered as a Republican after an easy win.3

In the meantime, life went on in New Mexico. William Llewellyn served as a delegate in the Territorial Republican Convention and was elected to the Territorial House of Representatives, of which he became speaker.4 James Gililland married.5 So did Thomas

Branigan.6 Oliver Lee was a delegate for the Territorial Democratic

Chapter 14

Plenty of Ammunition

After killing the Reverend Lay, Bill Longley left Delta County, but there is only his fanciful account of where he was for the next year, as provided in Fuller’s heavily edited Adventures of Bill Longley.

According to Longley, on June 13, 1876, he rode north from Delta County and camped near the Red River as it grew dark. He hid off the main road, ate a cold meal that he had gotten at Mr. Lane’s place, then slept on his saddle blanket. The next morning he took a ferry across the river and said that the ferryman told him of several parties who had crossed the night before into the Indian Territory looking for a man who had killed a preacher. Longley said that the ferryman looked at him with suspicion as Longley asked him questions, but Longley said that he learned that most members of the posse believed that the fugitive was still in Texas and that they planned to set up on roads leading into the Indian Territory and waylay Longley when he headed north.
