Because convicted sex offenders and child molesters may already have a prior record, and because the risk for rearrest is high among sex offenders, many judges impose a special sentencing for those convicted. Some convicted sex offenders and child molesters might be ordered to go into psychiatric treatment and/or counseling. They may also be ordered to attend a sex offender treatment program.
* According to the Survey of Inmates of State Correctional Facilities, the judge ordered approximately 13% of child victimizers into a treatment program.
* Approximately 29% of convicted child molesters who were confined for forcible sodomy of a child were ordered into a sex offender treatment program.
