Abstract:

To our knowledge no research had been conducted on risk profiles of various types of juvenile sex offenders compared to juvenile non-sex offenders. It is important to establish risk profiles of various offender groups to adequately refer juveniles for treatment. For the purpose of this study we examined differences in the prevalence and impact of static and dynamic risk factors between non-sex offenders (n = 504), misdemeanor sex offenders (n = 136), felony sex offenders (n = 116) and child abusers (n = 116). In general, in juvenile sex offenders fewer dynamic risk factors were present compared to the non-sex offenders. Moreover, the more severe the sex offense, the lower the prevalence of dynamic risk factors. However, the impact of dynamic risk factors for general recidivism was much higher for the sex offenders than for the non-sex offenders. The relative importance of risk factors differed between the various types of sex offenders and affected the risk profiles for each group.
