    Research aims to reduce sexual crimes

    An University of Auckland researcher hopes a study into men, who have committed an initial sexual crime but then not reoffended, can reduce future attacks.


    While is not hard to find media reports about men returning to prison for repeated sexual attacks, less common are the stories of those who commit an initial crime but then do not reoffend.

    Now an University of Auckland researcher is keen to learn more about those who do not reoffend, saying insights into their experiences could help reduce sexual crime.

    "Those are the untold stories of sexual offending and they could offer valuable insights for psychologists, clinicians and practitioners who are working in the criminal justice system to prevent sexual abuse," lecturer and psychologist Dr Gwenda Willis said.

    To assist her research, Dr Willis is calling for men previously imprisoned for sexual offending but who have not reoffended for at least five years to contact the university.

    In particular, she wants to hear from men previously considered to be at a "moderate-high", "high" or "very high" risk of sexual reoffending.
