This is how Tim Madigan begins "The Man Next Door," his interview witha convicted child molester. His editor said Madigan "can talk to anybody." Andthose Madigan talks to speak openly to him: "The fact is,"concedes Jones, a heavyset man with brown hair and eye-glasses, "I have a deviant attraction to young females." "With great reluctance, Jones says he has come to terms with the truth. "Pedo-phile" applies to him." Jones tells Madigan about his attempts to control his deviant tendencies. "Hehas thrown out his collection of pornographic movies He does not visit as hopping mall unaccompanied by his wife." Mrs. Jones is also open with Madigan, telling him that she has learned to standbetween her husband and any children that may be nearby in a line at a restaurant. "If my daughter comes and spends the night and I wake up and Dean's not inmy bed and I find him coming from the front of the house, I should call his probation officer," she tells Madigan. Jones goes along with all this, he says. "I've had the therapy. I've seen it work.As long as I'm not around kids, I haven't molested any kids. "I can't control what trips my triggers. Just like you can't control what tripsyour triggers. What I can do is control what I do with it next."
