John Rydberg has admitted to more than 90 sex offenses, but he thinks he's ready to be released from Minnesota's civil commitment sex offender treatment program, because, he says, he doesn't think he'll harm anyone again.

Dr. Paul Reitman is a psychologist who screens candidates for civil commitment programs and will be testifying at Rydberg's hearing where he will most likely recommend that Ryberg be released.

This segment aired on March 8, 2011.
