Rice-Harris-Cormier carried out a study of violent recidivism rates of 169 adult male mentally disordered offenders released from a maximum security psychiatric hospital. When they were compared over an average 10-year follow-up period forty percent of the total and 77% of the psychopaths (as defined by the Psychopathy Checklist) committed a violent offense.

The Checklist was as effective in prediction as was data on prior and childhood history. Psychopaths continued to repeat their offenses at a higher rate than nonpsychopaths even beyond age 40.
