Megan's Law: Assessing the Practical and Monetary Efficacy
Feb. 19, 2009
The "various impacts of community notification and registration laws (Megan's Law) in New Jersey" are examined (p. 1). Sections comprising this report include: executive summary; introduction; Phase One -- the trend study; Phase Two -- sex offender outcome study; Phase Three -- cost study; and project summary. It appears that Megan's Law does not decrease the rates of new first-time sex offenses or repeat sex offenders.
