        Factors that affect sex offender recidivism rates vary widely by type of crime committed, age of the offender, and his or her criminal history. The offender’s deviate sexual preferences also figure into sex offender recidivism rates. If an offender abused strangers, especially if multiple victims were involved, his or her odds of re-offending increase.   The relationship between criminal justice sanctions and sex crime recidivism remains largely unexplored. Therefore, using a sample of 8, previously incarcerated male sex offenders from 13 states in the United States, we focus on the sentence meted out for the sex crime conviction and the amount of time sex offenders served as a result of their by: 8.

Since the term sex offender commonly refers to the entire group, a casual reader could easily ascribe the % rate to all offenders. Overall, the sexual recidivism rate is well below 5%, perhaps as low as %.

        One of Canada’s leading sexual-offender experts, psychiatrist John Bradford, M.D., and his team conducted a year study of almost male sexual offenders and discovered that the gonadotrophic sex hormones luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) were better predictors of recidivism than the sex hormone testosterone was. The SOMB does not provide treatment to offenders, nor does it decide the fate of individual sex offenders; the purpose of the board is to prescribe clear best practices (standards and guidelines) for providers who treat and manage sex offenders so that they can be successful in reducing the risk of recidivism.
