"The little town of Crockett, California had been sitting in the path of airborne toxins for generations. Her residents knew it, but never had the voices with which to organize, much less take action and no one would have cared if they did. In 1994, that all changed when the Unocal petroleum refinery secretly polluted the sky for weeks and handed now-furious Crockett both the perfect adversary and legal opportunity to take back its power, and to keep it. Fresh out of law school, idealistic and determined to make a success of his fledgling law practice, [the author] shared his clients disdain for bullies and the entitled. While Unocal rushed to cover up the incident and its greed, [the author] raced to rally the town, challenging the company first on its own doorstep and then in the courts, filing a billion-dollar class action lawsuit, his first ever. Through this budding legal advocate's eyes, get a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of class action litigation, and how this young lawyer partnered with a community of thousands to expose one of California's worst environmental tragedies. Against the backdrop of corporate greed and heart-wrenching stories of human loss, it's the incredible tale of triumph and the amazing changes that once-little voices made just by standing up and saying enough."-- Back cover.

  • Introduction
  • The production of siting conflicts over SVP placements
  • Political mobilization in countrified suburbia
  • Litigating in a rural outpost
  • Politics, litigation, and disorganization in an urban city
  • The local context of community opposition to SVP placements
  • Solving the sex offender housing dilemma.
The controversy surrounding community responses to housing for sexually violent predators When a South Carolina couple killed a registered sex offender and his wife after they moved into their neighborhood in 2013, the story exposed an extreme and relatively rare instance of violence against sex offenders. While media accounts would have us believe that vigilantes across the country lie in wait for predators who move into their neighborhoods, responses to sex offenders more often involve collective campaigns that direct outrage toward political and criminal justice systems. No community wants a sex offender in its midst, but instead of vigilantism, Monica Williams argues, citizens often leverage moral, political, and/or legal authority to keep these offenders out of local neighborhoods. Her book, the culmination of four years of research, 70 in-depth interviews, participant observations, and studies of numerous media sources, reveals the origins and characteristics of community responses to sexually violent predators (SVP) in the U.S. Specifically, The Sex Offender Housing Dilemma examines the placement process for released SVPs in California and the communities' responses to those placements. Taking the reader into the center of these related issues, Monica Williams provokes debate on the role of communities in the execution of criminal justice policies, while also addressing the responsibility of government institutions to both groups of citizens. The Sex Offender Housing Dilemma is sure to promote increased civic engagement to help strengthen communities, increase public safety, and ensure government accountability.
