Sex Offenders, the Tennessee Public Registry, and Suicidality
This paper explores the relationship between the Tennessee sex offender registry and suicidality. The research looks at the registry as a factor in suicidality among offenders by identifying cause of death of offenders on the Tennessee registry between 2011 and 2016. An Internet search engine was used to determine causes of death from a list of offenders from the TBI, which included 434 men and women who died while registered. Findings and implications for intervention and policy will be discussed.
