Sex offenders remain the most hated group of offenders subject to a myriad of regulations and punishments beyond imprisonment including sex offender registries chemical and surgical castration and global positioning electronic monitoring systems. While aspects of their experiences of imprisonment are documented less is known about how sex offenders experience prison and community corrections spaces - and the implications of their status on their treatment and safety in such environments.
