102 were charged with any type of offense during the follow-up period, and of those 102, 62 were for violent offenses. The study also found that over the course of a year, the JSOAP-II significantly predicted recidivism rates in all categories. Youths that were registered sex offenders had lower rates of misdemeanor charges, which is likely due to the fact that the registered offenders were lower risk. The study found few differences between registered and unregistered juvenile sex offenders, meaning that it could not conclude that registration lowers the risk of recidivism. These findings are important because it is useful to know the effects that our policies have.
Many people have heard of human trafficking, yet many people just turn a blind eye to the issue. In a sense that if it is out of sight it is out of mind. Which is why we need a response team for the individuals who are able to move past these experiences and make it out on top. They need help as well as support. The problem is many of the victims of sex trafficking are stuck and do not know how to get out.
Making Sense of Crime, Policy and Values- Sex Offender Laws The effectiveness of sex offender registrations and what do individuals do with that information, are questions that are being raised. We know that parents often seek information on individuals who they feel may pose a risk to their children. Whether it is a babysitter or the teenage boy next door, these parents find information by frequenting the sex offender registry. Sarah Tofte, one of the authors of the Human Rights Watch suggests, that the laws are written so broadly that even individuals who have not necessarily committed a sex crime have to register as a sex offender. If an individual urinate or expose oneself in public, that individual has to register as a sex offender and will be portrayed as such to parents and other individuals who view the registry.
If buying sex becomes an illegal activity, less individuals will feel inclined to buy it. Also, it is a known fact that prostitutes are constantly exposed to physical, verbal, and emotional abuse from their pimps, so the passing of this Bill would hopefully make sex workers feel empowered to come forward and report the abusive behaviour they are always
In some cases, they can have a history of sexual abuse within the family which is the cycle of abuse argument (Finklehor;1984), which can be the reason that leads to them re-enacting their childhood on another, the explanations suggest four various reasons being anger over the abuser, identification with them, career progression and psychological damage from previous abuse (Howitt;1995). With the cycle of abuse being rooted in the psychological development of the person due to their lack of empathy and their addiction to sexual deviant behaviour which plays a role in how the cycle is developed (Bagley et al;1994). Paedophilias use this cycle as an argument to explain their behaviour although there can be issues of how credible this is such as when it comes to female sex offenders when it comes to explaining them, as it is considered that females are more likely to be a victim of sexual abuse as there are more reported male sex offenders than females, which raises the issue of weather female offenders work the same way that males do or dose society see female sex offenders not as serious as a they perceive males
Overview Recidivism in sex offenders returning to the community consistently remains a constant concern for society. Recent studies have directed in the direction of guidelines for professionals evaluating sex offenders with exclusive attention on identifying sexual recidivism as a whole. Clinicians must approach sex offender testing with caution; there is not an exact method of predicting sexually deviant behavior with 100 percent accuracy. However, multiple assessments have demonstrated the ability to identify and predict erotic deviant behavior (DeClue & Zavodny, 2014). The Static-99R (revised in 1999) is one of the most widely used forensic assessments developed to predict deviant sexual behavior in adult sex offenders.
According to sex offender statics, sex offenders are kept off of these grounds because this helps reduce the temptation or recidivism rates of that offenders to possible reoffend, due to this statement has been a huge argument, because people say if a sex offender want to offend they will do it anyway. These restrictions of dwelling also bring up argument with recidivism, because it forces the offenders to leave in place where jobs might not be as enrich, treatment may not be available closely, or makes it hard for law enforcement officials to get to.

While there are some that make the career choice willingly, many of them have been found to be victims of human trafficking. This becomes an ethical conflict as the justice systems end up prosecuting and punishing the very people they were meant to protect. Should the girl even managed to overcome the trauma of being a sex slave and survive the justice system, they now have a criminal record for sex work related offenses when they try to reintegrate back into society. They are often prevented from getting decent jobs and other prospects of rebuilding their lives after. Therefore, even if they are able to escape from the horrors of the sex trade, a record of their “criminal” activity victimizes them for the rest of their lives (Flora and Keohane,
The Oxford Dictionary refers to trauma as “A deeply distressing or disturbing experience.” This type of “disturbing experience” is what happens to people during a sexual exchange because they get abused and mistreated in the worst ways ever that even years after the experience you can still see the marks physically, mentally and emotionally that have been scared on them for something that they did not do and do not deserve. This reveals that the people involved go through tragic things that could not possibly go away or would be really hard to forget and need special therapy in order to get help. When someone is traumatized they will continue to live with the tragic memory for the rest of their life, be haunted and anxious. A “martyr” is a person that undergoes under severe and constant suffering in a long period of time and this is how the victims of the sex industry live because they are brainwashed, told to be nothing, and get abused during a cruel activity which they later suffer from trauma for the harsh experience that they undergo through. Even though some people can get help or they or if they do not they could possibly forget and try to go back to a normal life but it would at no time be the same.
Are there alternative approaches that should be considered, to provide rapid and appropriate responses to sexual violence while minimizing harm to students? The current article begins with an overview of federal law and guidance around compelled disclosure. Next, a content analysis of a stratified random sample of 150 university policies provides evidence that the great majority require most, if not all, employees to report student sexual assault disclosures. A review of the literature then suggests that these policies have been implemented despite limited evidence to support assumptions regarding their benefits and effectiveness. In fact, some findings suggest negative consequences for survivors, employees, and institutions.
