Probation Sentencing of Convicted Child Sex Offenders
This research examines the probation sentencing of convicted from data collected over an 8 year period. The research uses multiple regression and nominal log linear regression to examine length of probation and whether or not the convicted offender is actually sent to prison or sent to probation. While many independent variables appear to be related to probation sentencing and whether one is actually sent to prison or probation, they fall into three categories; characteristics of the victim, characteristics of the offender and characteristics of the crime.
