  1. We address the high variability in sex offender recidivism rates by examining several of the critical methodological differences that underlie this variability. We used a dataset on 251 sex offenders (136 rapists and 115 child molesters) who were discharged over a 25-year period to examine changes i …

  2. Prentky et al. (1997) examined recidivism rates on 115 child molesters and concluded that: (1) child molesters remain at risk to reoffend long after their discharge, in some cases 15-20 years after discharge; (2) there is a marked underestimation of recidivism rates.

  3. We address the high variability in sex offender recidivism rates by examining several of the critical methodological differences that underlie this variability. We used a dataset on 251 sex offenders (136 rapists and 115 child molesters) who were discharged over a 25-year period to examine changes in recidivism as a function of changes in dispositional definition of reoffense (e.g., arrest or ...

  4. The sexual recidivism rates of sex offenders range from about 3 percent after 3 years to approximately 24 percent after 15 years. The highest recidivism rates have been found among child molesters who offend against boys. Comparatively lower recidivism rates have been found for rapists, child molesters who victimize girls, and incest offenders.

  5. In a study that examined the recidivism of 191 child molesters and 137 non-sex offenders 15 to 30 years after their release from a Canadian prison, Hanson, Scott and Steffy (1995) found that child molesters had lower rates of overall recidivism (based on reconviction) than non-sex offenders (61 percent compared to 83.2 percent), but much higher ...

  6. The recidivism rates for nonsexual violence was 9.9% and 36.9% for any criminal, including a sexual, offense for the same follow-up period. Since 1995 there has been several subsequent follow-up recidivism studies of child molesters. Proulx and colleagues (1997) reported that in a sample of 269 child molesters, the cumulative rate for sexual,

  7. A 1984 follow-up evaluation showed that treatment was more effective for child molesters than rapists. In 1988 a study of 126 child molesters in Ontario with an 11-year follow-up found a 13% recidivism rate for treated offenders and 35% for the untreated group.
