Sexually Violent Predator Commitment: An examination of how actuarial risk scores and other offense factors influence commitment decisions

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



Abstract:

This presentation will examine factors related to post-sentence Sexually Violent Predator (SVP) commitment in the State of New Jersey. Specifically, this presentation compares a group of offenders selected for commitment (n = 372) with a group of sex offenders not selected for commitment (n = 2119). Logistic regression analyses reveal that the Static-99 and MnSOST-R actuarial risk influence commitment decisions, with higher risk scores predicting post-sentence SVP commitment. Findings reveal a number of other factors that distinguish groups selected and not selected for commitment, with prior sex offender treatment history placing offenders at higher risk of commitment. These data will be compared to other state-level data in an attempt to identify trends with regard to factors that influence commitment decisions.
