Predictors of Recidivism in Australian Juvenile Sex Offenders: Implications for Treatment
Sex Offender Recidivism Research Paper - EssayEmpire
May 17, 16 comments. Most studies of recidivism begin with the statistics gathered on re-offending. Typically, these figures are assembled by states over three year periods, and this data is appropriately criticized for two principle reasons—that these figures do not reflect accurately what happens over a longer period of time, and that they cannot reflect crimes that are not prosecuted. But these studies do provide a tool by which to compare sex offender recidivism to recidivism for other crimes. And the recent sex offender recidivism numbers which are included further down here are lower than any other category of crime. Persons working in the field—treatment providers and parole officers particularly—tend to rely more heavily on actuarial tools developed that provide predictions about the likelihood of reoffending. The myth of very high recidivism seems to rest on a handful of poorly designed studies.
