Author Biography - Suzette Cote

Suzette Cote is Assistant Professor in the Division of Criminal Justice at California State University, Sacramento, where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses that primarily deal with criminological theory, sex offenses and offenders, and family violence, child abuse, and elder abuse. She received her law degree with a concentration in Family Law (SUNY at Buffalo School of Law, 1998). Cote's dissertation, Modernity, Risk, and Contemporary Crime Control Strategies as Risk Management: An Analysis of Sex Offender Statutes and the Shift Toward a Risk Society, focuses on the shift in penal practices away from rehabilitation and treatment of individual criminals and towards the management of dangerous classes offenders. A forthcoming publication, "Megan's Law in California: The CD-ROM and the Changing Nature of Crime Control," will be published in an edited text, Sexual Violence: Policies, Practices, and Challenges (tentative title) by Debra S. Kelley and James Hodgson (Greenwood Publishing Group).
