Even though castration is not a guarantee that men will be repeat offenders, it should encompass both surgical and chemical methods. When the judge determines sentencing, depending on the severity of the crime, he should factor in previous offenses.In the case of multiple offenses then it should be mandatory that the offender be surgically castrated. But in the case of first time or juvenile offenders, chemical castration should be considered.
The offender, the judge and any other parties involved should be given the opportunity to have an effect on sentencing. In cases of juvenile victims, either form of castration would be acceptable. However, in cases of adult victims, where intoxicants are involved and consent cannot be completely ruled out, castration of any kind should not be warranted.
