- "The goals of this project were to evaluate the impact of juvenile sex offender registration and notification policies on first-time sexual offenses (general deterrence; Goal 1), sexual and violent recidivism offenses (specific deterrence; Goal 2), and on juvenile case processing including case dismissals, diversions, and plea bargains (Goal 3). Previous research has failed to support general or specific deterrent effects but has linked juvenile registration policies to unintended increases in case dismissals, diversions, and plea bargains. We aimed to replicate these findings. To date, we have addressed Goal 1 by evaluating the general deterrent effects of six states' juvenile registration policies, Oregon, Maryland, Idaho, South Carolina, Utah, and Virginia. In no case was any state's policy associated with a general deterrent effect, thus replicating the existing research. We continue to pursue the remaining goals of this project. However, in light of the fact that no published study has identified any community safety benefit of juvenile registration and that several published studies have identifed unintended policy effects on juvenile case processing and on children subjected to registration and/or notification requirements, we recommend that juvenile registratioin and notification policies be replaced with more effective approaches to the prevention of juvenile sexual offending."--PDF Abstract.
