Victim of sex predator fights back

Martin Andrews was kidnapped and assaulted in 1973 at age 13. Thirty years later, he lobbied lawmakers to fund a program to indefinitely detain sexually violent predators. Today, Virginia legislators are struggling with the escalating cost of housing them after their sentences have ended. (Whitney Shefte and Haley Lesavoy/The Washington Post)
