Sample text

In another study of 231 adult sexual offenders from a maximum security prison, the researchers found that a significant proportion, about a third, exhibited a pattern of escalation of seriousness over time, beginning in adolescence with compulsive masturbation and exhibitionism and escalating to more serious sexual assaults in adulthood (Longo and Groth 1983). They concluded that a number of the subjects in their sample began to exhibit problematic sexual behavior at an early age and because they were unrecognized and untreated were at risk to progress to more serious sexual assaults.

The study uncovered an interesting finding when the researchers conducted separate analyses for the sex offenders with child victims and sex offenders with peer/adult victims. When juvenile sex offenders who had committed their offense against children were compared to nonsex offenders, they had significantly fewer conduct problems. Juvenile sex offenders who had committed their sexual offense against a peer or an adult had similar patterns of conduct problems to nonsex offenders. Overall, the results of this meta-analysis provide the best empirical evidence to date against the notion that juvenile sex offenders represent a highly specialized offender group who can be clearly distinguished from nonsex offenders.

The argument against the designation of juvenile sexual offenders as a distinct group of juvenile offenders specializing in sexual offending is further supported by the often replicated finding that juvenile sexual offenders in the aggregate have a low sexual recidivism rate but a much higher recidivism rate for nonsexual offenses, comparable to nonsexual offender’s general recidivism rate (Caldwell 2002, 2007; Righthand and Welch 2001; Worling and Curwen 2000; Worling and Långström 2006). A significantly higher rearrest rate for nonsexual offenses among adult sexual offenders has also been reported (Hanson and Bussière 1998; Hanson and 34 The Return of the Blob Morton-Bourgenon 2004, 2005).
