It is most likely that the previous study in Florida that found high rates of violence among the female sexual oﬀenders considered a group of psychopathic female sexual oﬀenders, a much more dangerous group of female sex oﬀenders than might have been considered by the authors of the study. 94 The trauma of childhood sexual abuse has also been found to be prominent in the lives of mothers involved in the child protection system whose children have been sexually abused (Duncan, 2004). 99 At this point in time, the studies are inconclusive; however, as studies become more reﬁned, they may help to shed light on this seemingly interrelated pathway from sexual victimization to sexual oﬀending.
The use of violence and psychopathy as measured by the PCL-R was found across the three groups of male child sex oﬀenders. The results of the study also indicate that physical violence and sexual abuse can occur to child victims whether the oﬀender is related to the child or not related and whether the child victim is male, female, or a family member. The studies also found that psychopathy may indicate which individual sex oﬀender is at greater risk for violent recidivism in the commission of sexual oﬀenses.
Can also apply to female sex oﬀenders and is especially important in the context of crime reports that indicate that females are more likely to commit sexual crimes against children 12 years old and younger and that children 6 years old and younger may be particularly vulnerable to a female/mother with psychopathic tendencies committing physical violence against the child along with sexual violence. 91 Given the characteristics of psychopathy and the prevailing stereotypes that can still confound the perspectives on female violence and sexual oﬀending, it would be useful for mental health professionals working in cooperation with the criminal justice system and CPS to assess female sex oﬀenders for psychopathy.
