Decrease in Juvenile Crime In 2001, according to the FBI, juveniles accounted for 17% of all arrests and 15% of all violent crime arrests (Snyder, 2003). In the late 1980s, juvenile violent crime arrest had a substantial growth then peaked in 1994. However, between 1994 and 2001, the juvenile arrest rate for Violent Crime Index fell 44% and as a result, the juvenile Violent Crime Index arrest rate was the lowest since 1983 (Snyder, 2003). Furthermore, in 2001, the rate of juvenile arrests for Violent Crime Index offenses that included forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault and murder declined for the seventh consecutive year. The juvenile arrest rate for each of these offenses has been declining steadily since the mid-1990s; for murder, the rate fell 70% and manslaughter arrest rate fell 40% from its 1993 peak through 2001.
Running Header: STOP THE INCARCERATION AND START THE REHABILITATION 1 Stop the Incarceration and Start the Rehabilitation Amber Pritt English 215 Professor Dorothy Hoerr December 8th 2013 STOP THE INCARCERATION AND START THE REHABILITATION 2 Abstract About 9,700 American prisoners are serving life sentences for crimes they committed before they could vote, serve on a jury or gamble in a casino - in short, before they turned 18. More than a fifth have no chance for parole. Juvenile criminals are serving life terms in at least 48 states. The increased prosecution of juveniles in adult court is another failed “get tough” policy which is excessive and harmful to children and does nothing to increase
Since then 2,800 rapists were convicted and sent to jail, including one hundred and twenty-one who raped repeatedly. Because this law was passed it became mandatory for repeat offenders, however only eight of those offenders were sentenced to chemical castration. Around the country there are increasingly severe sex offender laws that are convincing criminals to take drastic measures to try to prove that they are fit to be in our society. As drastic as resorting to a treatment so brutal that it hasn’t been in use in the justice system for decades. This is known as voluntary castration and was first offered in the state of Texas for repeat offenders.
Could She Have Been Saved? In 2007, there were 284,300 victims of rape, or sexual assault (www.rainn.org/statistics). One in six women and one in thirty-three men will be a victim of sexual assault in their life time (www.rainn.org/statistics). Every two minutes someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted, and only 60% of sexual assaults are reported to police (www.rainn.org/statistics). Of those that are reported, only 6% of rapists will ever spend a day in jail (www.rainn.org/statistics).
Naming Sex Offenders More and more controversy arises every year over whether to make sex offenders names public. The question lurks in peoples’ minds are sex offenders really and truly rehabilitated or are they just simply claiming to be reformed? The answer to that question is that 89 percent of sex offenders repeat their offense after completing rehabilitation or being chemically castrated. Every state has a community notification system in place to alert the community of sex offender registrations. According to Appelbaum, “Most identified sex offenders reside in the community, having completed their prison terms or having been placed directly on probation without incarceration”.
However it has recently came to question of whether this perception of dangerousness is supported. Is it true that once a sex offender always a sex offender? In this paper I will discuss the evidence about the commonness and nature of sexual offending, characteristics of sex offenders, recidivism rates among different kinds of sex offenders and the support of treatment programs. In most studies the sexual offenders term can be broken down into 3 different classifications. The first group is sexual offenders that commit crimes of sexual violence against adults.
