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



Abstract:

The enactment of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety in 2006 is an extension of protective legislation aimed at establishing stricter sanctions for community-released sexual offenders. This new legislation extends public registration and notification requirements to offenders as young as 14 years of age. This study evaluates the ability of the Walsh Act's classification system to predict future sexual offending among juveniles using a sample of 108 offenders from an outpatient program. Results of this project indicate that offenders who met criteria for registration did not significanly offend at a higher rate than those who did not met criteria.
