Description

Sex crimes against children remain among the most horrific crimes in our society. In Vermont, there were 1,296 incidents involving sex crimes against children reported to the National Incident-Based Reporting System between 2004 and 2009. When a defendant is convicted of a sex offense, the Department of Corrections offers a variety of treatment programs aimed at treating and preventing further crimes. This study did not evaluate the efficacy of specific programs. Rather, this study examined the rate of recidivism and a typology of offenders in order to inform policy makers about who is likely to recidivate.
