Female and Male Sex Offenders: A Comparison of Recidivism Patterns and Risk Factors
Freeman, Naomi J.; Sandler, Jeffrey C.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v23 n10 p1394-1413 2008
Few studies have empirically validated the assertion that female and male sex offenders are vastly different. Therefore, utilizing a matched sample of 780 female and male sex offenders in New York State, the current study explored differences and similarities of recidivism patterns and risk factors for the two offender groups. Results suggested that male sex offenders were significantly more likely than female sex offenders to be rearrested for both sexual and nonsexual offenses. However, limited differences in terms of risk factors between female and male sex offenders were found. (Contains 3 tables, 2 figures, and 4 notes.)
