Abstract

In modern-day America, convicted sex offenders inspire unique fear and disdain, prompting an array of harsh correctional strategies. In addition to imposing lengthy prison terms, jurisdictions have resorted to a variety of non brick-and-mortar options targeting the vastly larger population of individuals who have reentered society. This book chapter examines research findings concerning several of the most noteworthy of these community-based interventions: (1) sex offender registration and community notification (a.k.a. “Megan’s Laws”); (2) residence restrictions; (3) involuntary civil commitment; and (4) electronic monitoring (including global positioning satellite technology).

Keywords: sex offender, Megan's Laws, registration and notification, community supervision, residence restriction
