The Effect of Context and Crime Characteristics on Sex Offenders’ Reaction to Victim Resistance" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, PA, <Not Available>. 2019-12-07 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p372117_index.html>

Abstract: The majority of empirical studies looking at victim resistance have identified conflicting results as to whether or not victim resistance leads to more violence/injury during the criminal event. However, few studies have investigated the factors associated to an offender’s violent response to victim resistance. Upon encountering victim resistance during the commission of a sexual assault, a sex offender makes a decision to react violently or nonviolently to the resistance. Event characteristics, including context and crime variables, are important factors in this decision-making process. Utilizing a rational choice and criminal event perspective approach, event characteristics were tested to determine their effect on sex offenders’ reaction to victim resistance. Sequential logistic regression produced an explanatory model that included victim age, premeditation, weapon use, humiliation, and time spent with the victim as predictors of offender violence and victim injury. A Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis supported the predictability of the model. This information may be useful in educating potential victims in harm reduction strategies.

Abstract: This study describes how organizational members are able to resist managerial influence collectively in the absence of overt talk or leadership communication—labeled here concertive resistance. Concertive resistance is exercised by organizational members according to a set of core group-level values which challenge, invert, or disrupt top-down control. Through an ethnography of a major American university football team, this study reveals how multiple and overlapping identifications allowed for collective resistance that arose spontaneously and without the aid of overt resistance leadership. Analysis of participant sensemaking about a resistance episode revealed differences in the discursive construction, application, and understanding of organizational and extra-organizational premises, which were associated with players’ overlapping identifications. The essay contributes to the resistance and organizational communication literatures by using Unobtrusive Control Theory to explain how group-level resistance is accomplished through control.
