From trial to verdict: A comparison of timely and delayed complaints of child sexual abuse

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The present study compared timely complaints of child sexual abuse (CSA) and historic complaints of child sexual abuse (HCSA) in relation to plea and verdict. Nine variables (severity, frequency, and duration of abuse, threats, gender of complainant, age of complainant when abuse began, age of complainant at trial, accused-complainant relationship, and jury presence) were examined. Findings demonstrate that case type is a significant predictor of plea and verdict. Age of complainant at trial and duration of abuse predict whether a HCSA case will proceed to trial and presence of jury predicts conviction for both CSA and HCSA cases.
