James Cundiff - Repeat Sex Offender - Gets 38 Years

A homeless sex offender who attacked three women and stabbed a nurse is sentenced Tuesday. Forty-two-year-old James Cundiff is heading to prison for 38 years.

Cundiff was convicted of stabbing a nurse in the neck last October while she was in a parking lot leaving Miami Valley Hospital. He was also convicted of robbing and attacking a homeless woman in August. Prosecutors say he attacked a woman on her front porch on North Belmonte Park in 2009.

Cundiff was also ruled to be a repeat violent offender.

Last month, Cundiff was convicted of felonious assault and robbery charges.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"
.........Sarah Tofte

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."
