This investigation assessed incidence rates of contact crimes among inmates arrested solely on charges of possession and/or distribution of child pornography. Participants were organized into three groups based on correlating crimes: (1) the “Child Pornography/Traveler” group, (2) the “Contact Sexual Offender” group, and (3) the “Other” group which included offenders convicted of nonsexual crimes. The largest of the preceding groups was the “Child Pornography/Traveler” group.
