SEX OFFENDER CASELOAD

Specially trained Community Supervision Officers supervise a caseload of sex offenders.  During the first 30 days, assessments will be facilitated identifying and documenting the risk/needs, an individualized supervision plan will be developed, and appropriate referrals will be made.  Face to face contact will include a minimum of one office visit and two field visits per month.  Additionally, one monthly collateral contact per month will be conducted with the Sex Offender Therapist.  The specialized caseload meets the obvious needs of sex offenders by providing more intense supervision and referrals for evaluation and treatment.  Probationers will be supervised on the specialized caseload as long as they are on supervision. 

The participant eligibility requirements for the Sex Offender Caseload include:

Offenders who meet the definition of a sex offender as defined in TDCJ-CJAD Standard § 163.38 (a) (3).  A sex offender is defined under this section as an offender who: (1) has a current conviction or deferred adjudication for a sex offense; (2) has a prior conviction or deferred adjudication for a sex offense and has been ordered by the jurisdictional authority to participate in sex offender supervision or treatment; or (3) has been ordered by the jurisdictional authority to participate in sex offender supervision or treatment.  Offenders who have a prior conviction or deferred adjudication for a sex offense will also be supervision on the Sex Offender Caseload even though the jurisdictional authority has not ordered the offender to participate in the sex offender supervision or treatment. 

The primary referral source for the offenders supervised on the Sex Offender Caseload will be the In-House Sex Offender Counseling Program.  The offender must satisfactorily complete all three treatment phases and remain in treatment phase four until termination of community supervision.  The Sex Offender Counseling Program’s purpose is the enhancement of supervision, assisting in the facilitation of the protection of society and rehabilitation of the defendant.  Professional counseling/therapy is the means by which the offenders can obtain the dynamics to become reality oriented and appropriately functional.  The Therapist provides the environment for the defendants to address the problems that contribute psychologically and socially to their inappropriate behavior. This is done through psychological testing/profiling, counseling/therapy, and on-going treatment.  The Therapist staffs the cases with the supervision officer on a monthly basis and provides written progress reports.
