This is the useful part of this brief………

In addition, SORN was studied for its impact on the
rates of sexual recidivism for registered sex offenders,
with the majority of studies demonstrating no impact
(Adkins, Huff, & Stageberg, 2000; Freeman, 2012;
Letourneau, Levenson, Bandyopadhyay, Sinha, &
Armstrong, 2010; Sandler, Freeman, & Socia, 2008;
Schram & Milloy, 1995; Zevitz, 2006; Zgoba & Bachar,
2009; Zgoba et al., 2008). However, two studies did show
a significant decrease in sexual recidivism for registered
sex offenders (Duwe & Donnay, 2008; WSIPP, 2005).

The two studies that showed a decrease in recidivism needs to be debunked. It must of been a faulty or a biased research or the facts were somehow manipulated to get the results that the researchers wanted……….

Overall, this report agrees with almost everything that we have been arguing for years now. Where there were some studies that worked against us, there was always one or more studies that disagreed with those studies (such as recidivism rates by using certain management programs). They agreed that residency restrictions do nothing to prevent sexual offenses or recidivism, GPS monitoring doesn’t help, etc. And I’m glad that the report here stated that future legislation and implemented programs should be based upon empirical evidence that it works. However, they seemed to justify SORNA and other useless programs on the basis that it makes people generally feel safer, because they think it makes sex offenders “obey the law.”
Another interesting aspect of this report is the information about reported incidents of harassment, physical and verbal attacks, loss of jobs, effect of personal relationships, and the 40-60% response from registrants that they regard it all as psychological torture. Janice should be able to use all this information in future court proceedings.

More ways for government to get in our lives and use children to seal the deal. The true child molesters are the ones who get voted in to office and this is an election year so the real crooks need to get there brownie points in.
