The Sentencing Project has released a report indicating that when it comes to crimes of a sexual nature, the criminal justice system has the wrong focus.  The research shows efforts are focused on increasing punishment and dedicating more resources to managing offenders of a crime of a sexual nature, while the prevention of new crimes remains a desert of attention, funding and directed resources. 


Even victims advocates are cited as having lost faith in this approach due to clear evidence of its failure to prevent new crimes.  Patty Wetterling, mother of Jacob of the Jacob Wetterling Act, is notably vocalizing her disenfranchisement with how offender laws misuse resources to prevent future crimes.
