Abstract: Juvenile courts continue to handle more sexual offense cases which increase the demands for valid assessment. Cognitive distortions have shown promise in assessing treatment amenability, treatment response, and recidivism risk. The Bumby Scales (1996) were originally designed to assess sexual offending specific cognitive distortions. The Bumby Scales were adapted for juvenile sexual offenders. The present study was designed to assess whether the Adolescent Bumby Scales appropriately identified juvenile sexual offenders from non-offenders. Preliminary analyses suggests that juvenile sexual offenders report lower levels of cognitive distortions associated with rape and higher levels of distortions associated with molestation than non-offenders.

Abstract: Prior studies on crime linkage have shown evidence that offenders commit crimes in a consistent manner, especially when we take into consideration the geographic and environmental information of the offense. However, much remains to be known about the influence of offender characteristics in understanding why and for whom offending consistency exists. To date, findings have shown either partial or little evidence supporting the association between crime scene actions and the offender’s characteristics and personality across different crime types. Prior studies in the criminal career field, however, found that offender characteristics have an impact on the level and patterns of specialization found. Using a sample of 72 serial sex offenders who have committed a total of 361 sexual assaults on strangers, the current study aims to identify offenders most likely to display behavioral consistency across their series and to evaluate the influence of selecting different cut-off points and techniques to determine which offenders are consistent or not. The findings are examined in light of the literature on offending consistency and specialization. Practical implications for police investigations and crime linkage analysis are also discussed.

Abstract: Sexual crimes are typically thought of as a male-dominated crime, but more research has begun to examine female perpetrated sexual crimes. Most research on female sexual offenders has focused on offender and victim characteristics, as well as the development of typologies, which has done little to inform risk assessment. Previous research indicates that significant differences exist between two types of female sexual offenders, solo offenders (offenders who offend alone) and co-offenders (offenders who offend with another individual). While these findings do warrant further research, many of the results are limited due to small sample sizes. More research must be done using larger sample sizes in order to understand the differences in risk assessment between solo and co-offenders. The current study will examine risk variables, such as previous arrests and risk assessment scores, in a sample of 226 solo and co-offending female sex offenders. The results of this study will identify whether the risk variables can significantly predict general recidivism, violent recidivism, and sexual recidivism in the sample of solo and co-offending female sexual offenders. The implications of the findings for this study will help inform risk assessment for female sexual offenders.

Abstract: Prior studies on crime linkage have shown evidence that offenders commit crimes in a relatively consistent manner, specifically when it come to the geographic and environmental information of the offense. However, much remains to be known about the influence of offender characteristics on offending consistency. To date, findings have shown either partial or little evidence supporting the association between crime scene actions and the offender’s characteristics and personality across different crime types. Nevertheless, prior studies in the criminal career field support the idea that offender characteristics have an impact on the level and patterns of specialization found. Using a sample of 72 serial sex offenders who have committed a total of 361 sexual assaults on stranger victims of any age and any gender, the current study aims to identify offenders most likely to display behavioral and environmental consistency across their series. The findings are examined in light of the literature on offending consistency and specialization. Practical implications for police investigations and crime linkage analysis are also discussed.

Abstract: Despite a great deal of information on various types of offenders, little is known concerning the offending patterns of homicide perpetrators. This study compares and contrasts various types of homicide offenders on three categories of variables, 1) offense-specific variables, 2) victim-specific variables and 3) offender-specific variables, in an effort to determine those that are predictive of recidivism upon release. A sample of 300 homicide offenders who have been released in the year 1998 from the New Jersey Department of Corrections will be identified and followed for 5 years. These offenders will be tracked to determine if incarcerated homicide offenders who have no criminal histories prior to their current homicide conviction will recidivate less, whether length of sentence and time incarcerated is associated with rates of re-offending and whether homicide offenders who murdered a family member or acquaintance are less likely to recidivate than offenders who murdered a stranger.
