The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) released its latest resolution regarding sex offender requirements for youth under the age of 18.

Research shows that placing youth on sex offender registries does not advance public safety and can actually make communities less safe. Research also shows that re-offending rates for youth who offend sexually are extremely low and that juvenile sexual re-offense risk assessments have been validated for predicting sexual re-offending.

'There is a growing body of research that indicates that for the majority of youth charged with sexual offenses registration requirements are more harmful than helpful—for the youth and for public safety,' said Melissa Sickmund, Ph.D., director, National Center for Juvenile Justice , NCJFCJ's research division. 'This resolution provides information and guidance to reduce, and perhaps even eliminate, sex offender registration for youth.'
