141) I am assuming that the acquittee is insane at the time she recidivates.
Fourth, my proposal only reaches acquittees who are mentally ill when they recidivate.
161) If there is no method of ensuring that the acquittee continues to take her medication after release, she may quickly become insane again, recidivate, and be rehospitalized.
In a number of states, the offender may file a petition for a rehearing asserting that registration and notification are no longer necessary because he or she is rehabilitated and not at risk to recidivate.
There is also much variance in recidivism rates among recent studies: (111) "Studies report rapists recidivate at a rate of 7% to 35%; offenders who molest young girls, at a rate of 10% to 29%, and offenders who molest young boys, at a rate of 13% to 40%.
Offenders may even be less likely to participate in treatment and may even be driven to recidivate by the stress of notification.
104) By formulating the study in this manner, the results suggested only the probability that an incarcerated felon recidivates but gave no data on the rate of recidivism for offenders diverted to alternative sanctions.
The goal has been to divide nonviolent criminal offenders into groups--those deemed most likely to recidivate are imprisoned while those assessed to pose less of a threat to society are given alternative sanctions.
The recidivism rate was cumulative, so once an offender was determined a recidivate, his data would not be used to determine future yearly rates.
It is quite possible that an offender selected for the study was arrested out-side the state and would not have been counted as a recidivate.
