Abstract

Recidivism of juvenile homicide offenders .

Serious offences against persons perpetrated by juveniles raise fundamental questions about the background, causes, and prevention of future crime. The current study addresses the potential of future crime of juvenile homicide offenders (JHOs) in The Netherlands who were incarcerated in the period 1992-2007. In contrast to merely descriptive former research on recidivism of this offender group, we provide an explanation for why some of the juveniles relapse into crime, while others do not. To this end, associations are investigated between recidivism behavior and risk factors. Results indicate that male JHOs and JHOs who maintain relationships with delinquents run a greater risk to reoffend.
