Overview

Most sex offenders will eventually be released from incarceration and will need to reintegrate into society. It is, consequently, critical to understand what motivates individuals to commit sexual offenses, what reduces the likelihood of recidivism, and the best method of managing and supervising sex offenders in the community.
Williams-Taylor examines recidivism rates of sex offenders monitored by an intensive supervision and management program. She reviews risk factors and various types of recidivism, compliance with Megan's Law, and models for differentiating between high-risk or low-risk to reoffend or abscond from registration. This is important to the criminal justice community and vital to understanding these types of public safety initiatives.
