Are PCL-R Scores from State or Defense Experts More Predictive of Future Offending?

Abstract:

In two recent studies, Murrie and colleagues found that PCL-R total scores from state-retained experts were consistently higher than those from defense (respondent) retained experts in 35 sexually violent predator trials. In this study, we examine the extent to which state and defense PCL-R scores predict future offending (felonies for violating terms of the outpatient commitment program). Scores from either side were modestly predictive, and neither side clearly outperformed the other. However, findings suggest that scores from each side need to be interpreted differently and that simply averaging scores was not the best solution.
