WEST TEXAS- The mind of a sex predator- experts say it's not much different from that of a drug or food addict. But when they're feeding their appetite, they could damage a kid for life.
"They lack trust, they lack empathy, they have anger issues," Tommy Pool, a therapist in Odessa who specializes in sex addiction, said.
He said that's what comes after the excitement, fantasy, rush and sex with a teacher. But for the adults, it could be worse. He said a teacher could become increasingly excited over contact with a minor and gradually become an addict without even realizing it's happening.
