Chilling Child Sexual Abuse Statistics

  • U.S. Department of Justice reports that 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 7 boys are molested before the age of 18.

  • An estimated 61% of violent sex offenders in State prisons have a prior conviction history.

  • An estimated 1 in 4 imprisoned rape and sexual assault offenders has a prior history of a violent crime and 1 in 7 have been previously convicted of a violent sex crime. (U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, February 1997)

  • 67% of all victims of sexual assault reported to law enforcement were minors and 34% of those victims were under the age of 12. (National Incident-Based Reporting System)

  • Since 1980, the number of prisoners sentenced for violent sexual assault (other than rape) has increased by an annual average of nearly 15% -- faster than any other category of violent crime and faster than all other categories except drug trafficking. (U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, February 1997)

  • FBI studies have shown that pornography is very influential in the actions of sex offenders and serial murders. Statistics show that 90 percent of the predators who molest children have had some type of involvement with pornography. They use pornography and child pornography to aid them in their molestations.

  • The average pedophile molests between 30-60 children BEFORE he is arrested the first time, and an average of 360-380 children in his/her lifetime.

  • Convicted rape and sexual assault offenders serving time in State prisons report that two-thirds of their victims were under the age of 18, and 58% of those said their victims were aged 12 or younger. (U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Sex Offenses and Offenders, An Analysis of Data on Rape and Sexual Assault, February 1997)

  • Women who had been raped as children were almost four times more likely than non-victims to make a serious attempt to commit suicide. (Beth E. Molnar et al., Psychopathology, Childhood Sexual Abuse and Other Childhood Adversities: Relative Links to Subsequent Suicidal Behaviour in the US, 31 Psychol. Med. 965, 972 (Table 3)(2001))

  • Perpetrators of child sexual abuse remain at risk of reoffending many years after the original abuse. “Inducing a child to have sex does not depend on any overwhelming physical or sexual prowess but rather on verbal manipulation – an ability that, of course, does not recede with normal aging.” (Robert Dickey et al., Age as a Differential Characteristic of Rapists, Pedophiles, and Sexual Sadists, 28 J. Sex & Martial Therapy 211, 213 (2002). Unlike most violent offenders, child molesters do not “age out” of criminality.

  • “Intensive community-based supervision and management of child molesters are essential to reduce sexual victimization rates; child abusers have been known to reoffend as late as 20 years following release into the community.” (Child Sexual Molestation: Research Issues, U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice, June 1997)
