The Relationship Between Sex Offender Legislation and Psychosocial Factors
by Kus, Elizabeth A., Psy.D., The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, 2015, 86; 3637159
Abstract (Summary)

Sex offender legislation is designed to make communities feel safer, with little or no empirical data utilized in the law's creation. The existing research indicates that rates of rapes have decreased since major sex offender legislation was developed and implemented. However, the research has also demonstrated that no significant effect occurred regarding recidivism rates following the passage of sex offender legislation.
