Judicial consideration of complainant conduct after sexual assault in historic child sexual abuse cases

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



Abstract:

Few studies have explored how judges make decisions in child sexual abuse cases. There is indication, however, that there may be judicial interest in complainant conduct after abuse and reasons for delaying disclosure of the abuse. The aim of the present study was to examine judicial comments about these two variables. Judicial comments about complainantsÂ’ thoughts/feelings after the abuse and external reasons (e.g., threats) for delaying disclosure of the abuse were more common in cases that ended in conviction than acquittal. Complainant-accused interactions following abuse, internal reasons for delayed disclosure, and complainant actions after the abuse were unrelated to verdict.
