Abstract: The Static-99 is a risk assessment tool that has shown high utility in predicting sexual recidivism (Hanson, Morton and Harris, 2003). Low levels of inter-rater reliability (IRR) may, however, increase measurement error and ultimately impact the accuracy of re-offense predictions. The current study examined levels of IRR in the Static-99 by comparing individual items and total scores completed by Masters level research assistants to clinical correctional staff across case files of 300 sex offenders. Only two items on the Static-99 had high levels of IRR, while the additional items and total score yielded only moderate and low levels of IRR.

Abstract: The Occupy Wall Street movement that swept through the United States in the fall of 2011 transformed the discussion about social inequality and corporate greed in the country, but only for a short time. The movement lacked a set of unifying goals or specific demands and, as a result, failed to maintain its momentum and generate coverage in the traditional news media. Using the news media-social movement interaction literature, I study the newspaper coverage of the Occupy Wall Street movement throughout the United States from September 15, 2011 to March 15, 2012. I develop a Poisson regression model that incorporates variables for a newspaper’s size, market characteristics, and previous candidate endorsements to analyze the variation in coverage across newspapers. I find each variable to be a significant predictor of newspaper coverage. I also suggest that the current literature is outdated and needs to be revitalized to account for the changes that both the organization of social movements and the news media landscape are currently undergoing.

Abstract: Much of the literature on the Occupy phenomenon has treated the object of analysis as if it were no more than the sum of its squares. In this paper, I argue that this phenomenon was predicated, not only on the occupation of urban spaces, but also on the making and mobilization of the “99 Percent” imaginary as a mode of social and political practice. How did participants in Occupy conceive of the “99 Percent”? How did they mobilize this category of practice, in practice? Further, how did the occupiers deal with the many differences within the “99 Percent,” i.e., the divergent interests, identities, motivations, and aspirations among those who took up its banner? While quantitative surveys have yielded some intriguing results, we have seen surprisingly little qualitative data. This paper presents original findings on the politics of the 99 Percent, derived from eighty in-depth interviews, archival analysis, and one year of participant observation. For my respondents, the 99 Percent was no ready-made category of the real, but an imaginary they sought to make real, through the constitution of solidarities among an ensemble of otherwise heterogeneous interests and identities. Yet the 99 Percenters found these solidarities tested by very real disparities of power, time, and resources, e.g., between white and nonwhite Americans, union workers and student debtors, homeowners and homeless itinerants, citizens and undocumented immigrants. I argue that the disjuncture between the social imaginary and the social reality of the movement rendered the 99 Percent coalition internally unstable and ultimately unsustainable.

"Bayes Factors and Bayes-Generated Likelihood Ratios to Evaluate the Static 99 Scale for Predicting Sexual Offense Recidivism" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology (ASC), Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, Oct 31, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p167948_index.html>

Abstract: This poster presents the preliminary outcomes of the novel use of Bayes coefficients in assessing the predictive values of the Static 99 prediction scores for sexual recidivism. The analysis utilizes a previously published data set for 1,086 sexual offenders with known recidivism rates for a 15 year history. Bayes coefficients are produced for the likelihood of criminal re-offense over 5, 10, and 15 year intervals and likelihood ratios are also derived from the Bayes coefficients. Based on this analysis Bayes coefficients function well to capture the relatively outcomes of re-offending behaviors and assessment scores.
