Sammanfattning

In this study, we investigated the recidivism rate in a group of 45 men who committed their first sexual offence when they were adolescents. When committing the initial sexual offences during 2002-2005, the participants had a mean age of 16.2 years. We used data from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention about criminal offences committed during a 10-year follow-up period. The recidivism rate was 64.4%. No participant had committed sexual or physical offences (i.e., violence against others) exclusively but 15.5% had reoffended in both sexual offences and other types of criminal offences. The group that had committed new criminal offences had to a higher degree experienced parental separation, had an immigrant background, a higher degree of truancy, a higher degree of alcohol or drug abuse, and had at an early age been involved in other criminal offences than sexual ones. Problems such as truancy, alcohol and drug abuse are signals visible outside the family-system, and the need for early interventions seems obvious.
