Nothing drives emotions out the window more than hearing about innocent children being used for sex. In Cambodia, sex trafficking has grown into a troublesome issue. Sex trafficking has become one of the fastest growing crimes occurring internationally. It is the third largest crime-business in the world, after drugs and arms trafficking. Women, girls, and even men and boys are victims of the billion-dollar sex trafficking industry. Sex trafficking occurs everywhere, and it is not culturally specific, but a gender specific issue. There are numerous cases of sex trafficking within Cambodia, however child sex trafficking is extremely captivating and distressing to learn about.
Sexual abuse and assault on college campuses has been a rising issue dating back to the late 1950s. According to The United States Department of Justice, sexual assault is defined as “any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. Falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forcible sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling, and attempted rape.” Sexual assault has long lasting effects that go way beyond the immediate trauma that victims experience in the beginning, including pregnancy, transmitted diseases, anxiety, PTSD, depression, etc. Multiple studies and statistics have shown that not only will “approximately 20% female students
Sex offenders can be described as a person who has committed any of a variety of offenses, including rape, child abuse, possession of child pornography, exhibitionism (flashing), and even consensual sex amongst teenagers.They can vary between adults or juveniles, male or female, and the perpetrators may even be strangers, acquaintances, or related to their victims. Based on the different characteristics and motivations for committing these heinous offenses, these offenders require different responses that are appropriate in order to accurately treat, manage, and supervise them. This research paper will review types of offenses and offenders; pervasiveness of sexual abuse and recidivism; and responses to sexual offending, including treatment, supervision, and management practices for this population.
The opinion on what should happen to sex offenders is exactly that: opinionated. While trying to find opinions that argue with each other was pretty difficult, because most people believe that if you’re a sex offender, you’re a rapist, which makes it hard for anyone who committed a sex crime to find a job that will actually hire them, and then not even for a long period of time. With all of the laws that are against sex offenders, it also makes it hard to find a place to sleep, so many are homeless. Even if it wasn’t toward kids, then there is still a parameter that they have to follow. While doing the research for finding why a sex offender has to live the
Sex offenders have always been a great problem within communities because of the fear they incur among residence. The term sex offender applies to individuals who have committed a sex crime, which includes either genital exposure on school premises, raped and molested. Law Enforcement requires the minimum sentences for people who commit sexual offenses but I think it should be harsher. Sex offenders should be given a longer sentences for sex crimes so that they can actually learn to curb sexual offenses at future
The Dangerous sexual offender was a new amendment made to the criminal code enacted in 1960-1961 replacing the older criminal sexual psychopath. The new definition of the dangerous sexual had three components first is that a “person by his conduct in any sexual matter has shown failure to control his sexual impulses [second is] who is likely to cause injury pain or other evil to any person through failure in the future to control his sexual impulses or [third] is likely to commit further sexual offence (Klippert v. Queen, 1967, p. 833). The biggest difference between the earlier criminal sexual psychopath and the newer dangerous sexual offender was the or clause which allowed for the third alternative. This third alternative according to Kinsman
Perpetrators of sex crimes committed against children often start by gaining the trust of potential victims and the adults in their lives’ by using a tactic called “grooming.” The purpose of this memo is to give the court a baseline understanding of what sex offender victim grooming is, its purpose, and techniques. Because of the extensive amount of research and information on this topic, this paper does not detail all of the grooming techniques used by child sex offenders to groom potential victims.
As the video states that today there are three times as many women in prison as there were just ten years ago, the sizable number of female offenders had serious drug problems, more than half were victims of physical abuse, over a third had been sexually abused, and about a quarter those offenders has attempted suicide. Many of the women offender are not married or they are single parents, or they may have run away from home and is without home fighting to survive. Women were less likely than men to have offended and committed a crime because women grow out of crime, they are most likely to desist from offending in their late teens. Many of the offenders have been in the jail because of their family background, as in the documentary Heather Zerangue said her mom has been to prison and because the judge knew about her history, he had said to her that he was gonna put a stop to her before she got on her mother`s track. There are many women convicted of manslaughter or murder because they have committed murder of their boyfriend or husband during abuse toward them or someone close.
There have been hundreds to thousands of treatments that have been conducted, some similar and others drastically different. In this paper, I will go over just a few of the more important types of treatments. Brown et al, (2017) demonstrates three types of treatments. Pharmacological treatment, behavioral therapy, and most importantly cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). With pharmacological treatment’s their purpose is to reduce sex drive. The most common types of drugs used are antiandrogen, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and gonadotropic releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists. to go into more detail antiandrogen’s like cyproterone acetate (CPA) and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA)
The way in which sexual crimes are treated within the criminal justice system of the United States has changed drastically throughout time. Back in the 1970s there was no official protocol or way of dealing with sexual crimes, in fact most sexual assault cases never even made it into a court of law. One reason is that the definition of rape was structured in a way that many rapes that occurred were legally deemed not to be rapes due to terminology. The old law was designed to protect rape suspects by requiring victims to present independent evidence and corroboration. These laws were implemented because women were not trusted at the time and the thought of the word of a women being able to put a man into prison seemed preposterous. Even when cases were brought into court the victims sexual history could be brought up during the criminal trail strewing the juries vision of victims leading to victim blaming. But in some cases the defendants history could be blocked from entry into the courtroom yet again favoring the rape suspect. Not only that, but the lack of technology made collecting evidence of the rape even harder (Jackson).
“Faces of the enemy” a book written of Sam Keen which talks about how society has made us create enemies. For the “face of the enemy” propaganda I have chosen to focus on “The Enemy of Rapists”. In the photograph above, you can see that there is an ape-like creature, making the “enemy” seem like a wild animal, foul, disgusting, an embarrassment; they are less than the enemy, which categorizes them into “The Enemy of Beasts”. The ape is also carrying a frail and helpless white woman who is slouching back in his strong and protective grip arm with her hand on her head, screaming out that’s she is hopeless and in danger making it “The Enemy of Rapists”. That back in the day it was normal behavior to rape woman that it was
Prisoners who have been convicted of a sexual offence make up approximately 20% of prison population in New Zealand (Nadesu, 2011). In 2005, there were 703 in total apprehensions of sexual assaults committed against children 16 years and under in New Zealand. Since then there has been a rise with total of 1029 apprehensions recorded in 2014 (New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse, 2015), thus may be a reason as to why there has been such interest around child sexual offenders in criminology. Furthermore, sexual offending tends to be seen as an attribute in an individual that is unchangeable, with this there is potential that some may see child sex offenders in a more unfavourable light when being compared to a murder. Considering the statement above, it is also believed that sexual offenders are more likely to re-offend than other type of offenders because this type of violence is abnormal and untreatable. However, this is not the case, sexually offenders are less likely to re-offend then many other types of offenders (Thakker & Gannon, 2010). This essay will be based on understanding aspects around the attitudes, treatment, and rehabilitation of male child sexual offenders, based around New Zealand specific data about how communities and the Criminal Justice System treat male child sexual offenders. Therefore, with the help of literature and statistics, the main focus points of this essay will be around the underlying attitudes and statistical data surrounding child sex
This article discuss assessing sex offenders but not all of the participants did a written consent. The authors did not collaborate on ethnics, which is used at all times. If a offender is locked up and does not sign a consent form stating that they understand the study and the purpose of the study than it is
In this article the important topic is about child pornography. The sex child crime has been identified as one of the social problem for more than two decades. The adoption of internet reinforced sex crimes including internet child pornography possessions and has raised important questions regarding the use of the internet by the offenders and the law enforcement challenges in addressing these offences. There is a general agreement that the internet has made child pornography more significant and accessible to collectors and distributors. Wells, Finkelhor&Mitchell, (2007)
