 Uncensored:Jason Fortuny - Wikitruth   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Many have compared Fortuny's acts to those that would out and expose gay men, in that the victims and their letters all discussed legal acts that would occur between consenting adults, but acts that if publically known would result in physical, emotional, or monetary harm to the participants by others in society.
While Fortuny refers to his act as an "experiment", it must be noted that no ethical scientist would ever conduct such an experiment in which participants were chosen without consent and their privacy invaded and made public.
In that sense it is wrong to label his acts as experiment and more accurate to label his acts as malicious acts of thuggery and attention whoring.

 State v. Fortuny (03/08/2002) ap-1792
Fortuny, on the other hand, argues that he should get whole-day credit for these days of employment because work release is a staff-sanctioned aspect of the Genesis House program.
According to the State, Fortunys job-related absences were so extensive that he basically was able to lead his normal life, with the exception that he had to return to Genesis House to sleep.
If Fortuny and similarly situated defendants were denied credit for the time they spent on work release, this would undercut the acknowledged rehabilitative benefits of work release by deterring defendants from seeking work release and, potentially, deterring treatment programs from offering it.
