Offenders Who Assault Children

* * * * *
These statistics were posted Susan Sayor on her "Life Tips" Blog.

According to the US Bureau of Justice Statistics the following statistics are characteristic of offenders who violate children.

  • White inmates are nearly three times more likely to have victimized a child than black inmates.
  • One in every seven Hispanic convicts had been convicted for a crime against a child.
  • Nearly two-thirds of convicted child molesters were or had been married.
  • Child molesters and offenders were more likely to have grown up in a two-parent home and were more likely to have been molested as a child.
  • Approximately 22% of child offenders reported having been sexually abused as a child
