We are currently engaged in researching sex offender behavior during treatment.
We have examined polygraph maintenance exams of offenders in treatment. You may download a file in Adobe Acrobat Reader format ( PDF file) which contains a summary of the interim results. The study is being developed as a paper for publication.
We found sex offenders in treatment continued to engage in substantive amounts of high risk behaviors. A substantial proportion admitted additional sex crimes while in treatment. The study’s findings call into question traditional sex offender recidivism research findings.
