Coe has been sent to a 'commitment center,' which does not sound like Club 
Med to me.  It sounds like he's being confined, much like Sitler is.  I 
don't understand how he is dictating anything; he has served the sentence he 
was given, correct?  The state is seeking to continue to imprison him, and 
he is not being released while this matter is pending.

I do not have bunched up underwear from Sitler being allowed to attend 
treatment while serving his sentence.  He continues to be locked up the rest 
of the time, and will be released when his jail time is done.  It makes 
sense to me that he receives treatment prior to his release; otherwise he 
would START his treatment upon his release.  If he does anything wrong when 
released to attend treatment, he would likely face the imposition of his 
original sentence; he has every reason to comply.
