Unmarshalling a date

I have some XML that contains a date:
filter effectiveDate="2001-09-17T00:00:00.000-05:00" expirationDate="2001-08-23T00:00:00.000-05:00"
When the XML is unmarshalled using Castor, the object attribute containing the, and subsequently the SQL that updates my database, is a day earlier than the XML. For instance the 2001-09-17 date in XML is now 2001-09-16. See below:
UPDATE ValueFilter SET effectiveDate='2001-09-16', expirationDate='2001-08-22' WHERE . . . )
Is there some kind of conversion being done for me by the JDK related to daylight savings time that might cause this? I am using the IBM JDK 1.3.1.
Any help as to why this is happening and how to avoid it would be greatly appreciated.
