Abstract:

In an extension of current research on sentencing characteristics and actuarial risk assessment measures, the present study experimentally examined the impact of race on sentencing outcomes as well as the Static-99 and the RRASOR. Using a matched sample of 36 Latino and White males receiving outpatient treatment for sexual deviancy, we compared mean sentence lengths and scores on the two measures between the groups. No statistical difference was found between White and Latino sexual offenders on neither sentencing length nor the risk assessment measures. Results are discussed in terms of how race impacts sexual offender sentencing and risk assessment.
