Predicting sex offender recidivism: An examination of factors associated with early failure among sexual offenders

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



Abstract:

Although there has been some variation in the literature, detected rates of sexual recidivism are generally low (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2003; Hanson & Morton-Bourgon, 2004; Zgoba & Simon, 2005). Some of the predictive factors of recidivism have been identified; however, specifically when recidivism occurs and whether a pattern of factors differs between early and later recidivists has not been addressed. If there are characteristics of early recidivists that are different from those of later recidivists, it is important to identify these so that risk management efforts can be targeted to those most in need. This study examines the failure rates of sex offenders upon release, to investigate specifically how empirically validated risk factors may differentially predict early and later recidivism.
