Abstract:

Knowledge of the rates and correlates of juvenile offenders’ sexually transmitted diseases (STD) has been limited to samples of incarcerated youths comprised mostly of males. Data collected on 442 female and 506 male youths processed at a centralized intake facility enabled us to study this important public health problem among a representative sample of male and female juvenile offenders at the front end of the justice system. Latent class analyses identified subgroups of youths with varying degrees of risk based on UA drug test results, STI result, and seriousness of current charge. Differences in their socio-demographic and risk behavior characteristics are discussed. The results: (1) highlight youths’ STDs and drug use are interrelated phenomena, and (2) indicate that when compared to male High Risk youths, female High Risk youths are significantly more troubled. Prevention and intervention implications of these findings are discussed.
