Abstract:

This study investigates target selection scripts of 72 serial sex offenders who have committed a total of 361 sex crimes. Using latent class analysis, three scripts were identified based on the victim’s activities prior to the crime, each presenting two different tracks: (1) the Home script including the (a) intrusion and the (b) invited tracks, (2) the Outdoor script including the (a) non-coercive and the (b) coercive tracks, and (3) the Social script including the (a) onsite and the (b) offsite tracks. The theoretical relevance of these scripts and their practical implications for situational crime prevention strategies are discussed.
