FCI Seagoville is a Sex Offender Management Program site for low security male inmates. The Walsh Act was passed by Congress in 2006, and this law requires all inmates with a history of sexual offenses be reviewed and evaluated prior to release. This includes inmates currently serving a sentence for a sexual offense as well as inmates who are serving a sentence for another type of offense, but have a prior history of conviction for a sexual offense. The pre-release evaluation is mandated. Most inmates will be evaluated and found to be at low risk of sexually reoffending after release from incarceration. Those who are at high risk of committing new sexual offenses will be subject to civil commitment after their current sentence expires. The SOMP will also offer treatment in the form of classes and groups. If you are designated to the SOMP your unit team and psychology staff will encourage you to participate in these programs, but your participation will be voluntary. Finally, sexual misconduct of any type will not be tolerated. Any inmate who chooses to act out sexually will be subject to disciplinary proceedings and when necessary special correctional management plans will be implemented to prevent sexual misconduct in the institution.
