A new report backs up the low sex offender recidivism rates.
The report, looking at sex offenders under federal post-conviction supervision, was written by Social Science Analyst Thomas H. Cohen and Probation Administrator Michelle Spidell, of the Federal Probation and Pre-Trial Services Office.
The report found that generally those convicted of sex offenses scored lower on the Post Conviction Risk Assessment and recidivated less frequently than those convicted of non-sex offenses.
Among sex offenders, those under supervision for sexual assault were arrested or had their probation revoked at the highest rates, while those under supervision for child pornography offenses had lower recidivism rates.
