Sixty Percent of Sex Offenders Out on Parole or Probation
A recently-released 1994 study conducted by the Justice Department and shows that 60% of sex offenders are out of jail on parole or probation. In general, 75% of offenders are out on parole. Thus, though still high at 60%, sex offenders are less likely to be out on parole than offenders of other crimes.
