Sexual Crimes Against Children: A Study of Offender Recidivism
Group: Crime Research Group
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.
