Female sex offenders typologies in Huntsville, A. Awad, G. Criminal Behavior and Mental Health1 The six types of female sex offenders identified in the current analysis were: 1 criminally-limited hebephiles; 2 criminally-prone hebephiles; 3 young adult child molesters; 4 high-risk chronic offenders; 5 older non-habitual offenders; and 6 homosexual child molesters.
When a child responds positively to the grooming behavior, the child molester interprets this as the willing participation of the victim. However, once identified, incest offenders have the lowest rates of recidivism compared with other sex offenders.
However, it should be noted that these typologies do not always coincide with criminal justice classifications of sex offenders. Jane Kinder Matthews. Sex offenders are a heterogeneous group.
