According to the U. S. Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Statistics, 5% of convicted sex offenders were re-arrested for another sex offense within three years of their release from confinement.
Consider the following statistics:
* Within three years of their release, 5.3% of national sex offenders were rearrested for another sex crime. When including all other crimes, the percentage of sex offenders that were rearrested is estimated at 43%.
* While convicted sex offenders were not as likely as non-sex offenders to be rearrested for any crime, they were about four times more likely than non-sex offenders to be arrested for a sexual offense.
* Those convicted sex offenders who had the highest rate of rearrest of another sex crime typically had a criminal record of arrests for various crimes.
* Of those released sex offenders who were accused of another sex crime, 40% were arrested for the new offense with a year after their release.
