Individual Differences Predict Attitudes Toward Juvenile Sex Offenders: Education Level, Age, Political Orientation, and Gender

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



Abstract:

We investigated the influence of individual difference factors including education level, political orientation, gender, and age on public perceptions of juvenile sex offenders. Women considered juvenile sex offenders less threatening than men. Older participants considered juveniles more threatening than younger participants. Conservatives were more likely than liberals to believe registering juveniles makes communities safer, but less likely to consider juvenile sex offenders superpredators. As education level increased, desire for punishing juvenile sex offenders decreased, as did belief that registration makes the community safer, and belief that the juvenile understood his actions. These beliefs drove educated participantsÂ’ diminished support for registration.
