Miller, Katrina; Vernon, McCay
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v8 n3 p357-62 Sum 2003
A study of 41 sex offenders who are deaf found the rate of sexual offending was 4 times the rate of sexual offending by hearing offenders, with 30% recidivism. Sixty-two percent of subjects were functionally illiterate. However, the performance IQs were comparable to those of the overall prison population. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
