There are varying rates of recidivism in offenders in child abuse crimes. The rate of repeat offenses that involve incest are 135 percent, 35 percent for molestation. In terms of physical or emotional abuse, recidivism can be high because these are learned behaviors. The chance that a parent or caretaker who were physically or emotionally abused as children, repeating the cycle is very high. The only way to stop the cycle is through education and therapeutic intervention.
