Factors Predicting the Civil Commitment of Sex Offenders: A Comparison of One State’s Two Sex Offender Civil Commitment Statutes

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Although sex offender civil commitment statutes vary from state to state, they share a similar set of eligibility criteria (Jackson & Hess, 2007; Jackson, Rogers, & Shuman, 2004; Janus, 2000). However, a comparison of recent publications describing states’ civilly committed sex offender population characteristics reveals remarkable differences between these populations. This study illustrates the effects of Nebraska’s two contemporaneous sex offender civil commitment statutes and enables comparisons between Nebraska’s population of civilly committed sex offenders and similar populations in Washington, Minnesota, and Florida. Results clarify what extra-statutory information legal decision-makers consider when rendering sex offender civil commitment decisions.
