Abstract: 

Professionals from a variety of disciplines involved in the criminal justice system are users of courtordered client psychosexual evaluations and risk assessments. Various forensic professionals rely upon these documents at many stages of the legal process—pre-plea, pretrial, trial, disposition, incarceration, release, and community supervision. Yet, in my experience, few nonclinical professionals ever receive formal training in how to recognize a competent evaluation.
