On January 28, 2011, at 4:39 PM EST, Liberty Healthcare Corporation announced that Dr. Adam Deming will be speaking at the 2011 ACA Winter Conference. Dr. Deming will discuss how the INSOMM Program has reduced recidivism and incarceration costs for sex offenders in Indiana.

Stated in the press release from Business Wire, Only 17, or 1.7 percent, of 997 sex offenders released from prison in 2006 were convicted of a new sex crime within three years, a state recidivism analysis conducted in 2010 showed.

By comparison, a 2003 Department of Justice study found that 3.5 percent of the over 9,700 released sex offenders surveyed in 15 states had been convicted of a new sex crime within three years.

Credit for the success in keeping sex offender recidivism low is being given to the public/private partnership between the State of Indiana and *Liberty Behavioral Health Corporation, which oversees the Indiana Sex Offender Management and Monitoring Program (INSOMM).
