Adolescent Sexual Offender Recidivism: Success of Specialized Treatment and Implications for Risk Prediction.
Worling, James R.; Curwen, Tracey
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v24 n7 p965-82 Jul 2000
Recidivism data (criminal charges) were collected for 58 adolescent sexual offenders participating in at least 12 months of specialized treatment and compared with other groups. Recidivism rates for treated adolescents were 5.17 percent compared to 17.8 percent for similar non-treated offenders. Sexual recidivism was predicted by sexual interest in children whereas non-sexual recidivism was predicted by general delinquency factors. (Contains extensive references.) (Author/DB)
