“Time-Series Analyses of the Impact of Sex Offender Registration and Notification Law Implementation and Subsequent Modification on Rates of Sexual Offenses” (Page 1: Using data from a large metropolitan area in Texas over the time period 1977 to 2012, and employing a number of time-series analyses, the impact of the initial SORN implementation and two enhancements to the law were examined.  Results reveal no effect of SORN, or its subsequent modifications, on all sexual offenses or any of the several specific offenses’ measures (e.g., crimes by repeat offenders).  Pages 25-26: A growing number of studies suggest that the implementation of SORN requirements has had little relationship to rates of sexual offending over time.  The current results, in conjunction with much of the existing research on SORN laws, suggest that these requirements alone may do little to combat the problems posed by sexual offenders in the community.)
