At the University of Arizona, we hope to develop a series of studies that will ultimately examine a variety of empirical issues relating to the law and plea process with respect to sex offenders. These studies arise from one particular therapeutic jurisprudence application proposed by David Wexler and Bruce Winick. This Article summarizes the empirical questions raised by Wexler and Winick's theory and suggests how those questions might be empirically analyzed.
