I read a story several years back and I'm now trying to track it down having forgotten the title and author.

It was in a digest magazine; probably F&SF, but maybe Asimov.

It was about a criminal undergoing virtual rehabilitation. He was put into a virtual world where he could kill with a thought, but if he did, he had to go back to square one with his rehab. Eventually, he meets another inmate in this virtual world and she inspires him to complete the rehab.

Any help or clues on how I can track this down would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

The only story with a similar line that I remember, though here everyone forgets "bad memories" but for one week is "recalled" and remembers that suff is The Sanguine by Jim Grimsley in March 07 Asimov's
