Per Recidivism of Sex Offenders Released from State Prison: A 9-Year Follow-Up (2005-14) posted by ojp.usdoj.gov
Rape and sexual assault offenders were less likely than other released prisoners to be arrested, but they were more likely than other released prisoners to be arrested for rape or sexual assault.
Released sex offenders were more than three times as likely as other released prisoners to be arrested for rape or sexual assault (7.7% versus 2.3%).
About two-thirds (67%) of released sex offenders were arrested for any crime, compared to about five-sixths (84%) of other released prisoners.
Half of released sex offenders had a subsequent arrest that led to a conviction.
Released sex offenders accounted for 5% of releases in 2005 and 16% of arrests for rape or sexual assault during the 9-year follow-up period.
If registries are a good idea and work why only use them for the group with the SECOND LOWEST (only murder is lower)recidivism only?
END THE HATE AND DISCRIMINATION! END THE SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY!
