Animal Cruelty Offender Typologies: Risk Assessment Considerations

Professor Tedeschi discussed his research on the assessment of animal cruelty offenders.  He sees a need for those investigating these cases to raise animals to a level of victim.  He also sees a need to incorporate a diagnostic typology in evaluation to be able to adequately intervene with these offenders.
