Convicted sex offenders are often sentenced to prison terms, the length of which seems to be determined more by the vagaries of judge and jurisdiction than by characteristics of the offense or offender. Most of these persons then enter the general convict pool of state penitentiaries, at the end of which they may be more sociopathic and better able to evade capture than before incarceration, but-just as likely to commit a sex offense.
