Increasing Age Means Lower Risk

Dr. Karl Hanson has illustrated the relationship of the type of offender, age, and risk by a well known graph detailing the recidivism rates of sex offenders. Hanson, R. K. (2001). Age and sexual recidivism: A comparison of rapists and child molesters. Solicitor General Canada. A will known graph developed by Hanson details both the rate of recidivism between the various types of offenders and well known and accepted notion that with age the recidivism rates decrease. The most significant points demonstrated by the graph are as follows: One, interfamily offenders have lower and shorter recidivism risks. Two, adult rapists offending decrease earlier in life.
