The efficacy of violence prediction: a meta-analytic comparison of nine risk assessment tools.

M Yang, Wong, J Coid - Psychological bulletin, 2010 - psycnet.apa.org

Their conclusion:

Quote:
The moderate level of predictive accuracy of these tools suggests that they should not be used solely for some criminal justice decision making that requires a very high level of accuracy such as preventive detention
Most items in structured risk assessment instruments do not predict violence

JW Coid, M Yang, S Ullrich, T Zhang… - The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology 2011 - Taylor & Francis

You can find more through Google Scholar. But you can see that they think using the standard instruments would not be useful for a legal decision such as denying some of their rights. The only thing that has some use was a history of past violence.
