Childhood Predictors of Sexual versus Nonsexual Offending

Abstract:

The present study examines the relationship between childhood risk factors and sexual versus nonsexual offending in a sample of 378 male offenders in Ontario, Canada. Results revealed that individual, family, and school risk factors differentiated sexual from nonsexual offending. Specifically, backward stepwise logistic regression analysis revealed that exposure to familial abuse, extra-familial sexual abuse, and criminal family members during childhood significantly predicted sexual offending, while low self-esteem, parental psychopathology, and poor behaviour toward school marginally predicted nonsexual offending. Identification of factors related to offence types may inform early intervention programs aimed at reducing negative outcomes.
