Summary

This book is a comprehensive text on sexual offenders that examines the causes and treatment of sexual offenses, as well as the policy implications of research outcomes. The subject matter is inherently controversial, well-researched, and rich in policy implications. As a result of the recidivism and the public scorn for sexual offenders, they are often treated differently by both the community and the criminal justice system. It was necessary to develop a book on sex offenders because of the uniqueness of their offenses and the laws that pertain to them.

Author Biography

Karen Terry is an Associate Professor in the Department of Law, Police Science, and Criminal Justice Administration at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY).
