Perceptions of Abuse History as a Cause of Juvenile Sex Offending

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



Abstract:

In a survey of community members, we found general agreement with the assumption that early sexual abuse leads to future sexual offending. In addition, the rate of sexual abuse among juvenile sex offenders was overestimated. As predicted, the more participants attributed the cause of juveniles’ sex offending to having been sexually abused, the less likely they were to have retributive motivations and, in turn, the less likely they were to support the application of registry laws to juvenile sex offenders. Implications of these findings for public policy will be discussed.
