  • Four data sets (the FBI’s UCR arrests, State felony court convictions, prison admissions, and the National Crime Victimization Survey) all point to a sex offender who is older than other violent offenders, generally in his early 30′s, and more likely to be white than other violent offenders.
  • On a given day in 1994 there were approximately 234,000 offenders convicted of rape or sexual assault under the care, custody or control of corrections agnecies: nearly 60% of these sex offenders are under conditional supervision in the community.

  • Statistics
  • The Statistics of Teacher sexual abuse to Students
  • The best estimate is that 15% of students will be sexually abused by a member of the school staff during their school career.
  • Though, when the American Association of University Women Foundation surveyed more than 1,600 students in eighth through 11th grade, 25 percent of the girls and 10 percent of the boys who said they had been harassed or abused said the harasser was a school employee.
  • The number of K-12 public and private school students in 1996 who have been or will be sexually abused by a member of the school staff is nearly 7 million of 51,331,000.
  • Between 1% and 5% of teachers sexually abuse or harass students.
  • At least a quarter of all school districts in the United States have dealt with a case of staff sexual abuse in the past ten years.
  • Most cases of sexual abuse of students by teachers are never reported.
  • In nearly half of the cases, suspects were accused of abusing more than one student.
  • Only two cases were cases of false accusations; less than 1 percent of the cases studied.
  • No type of school was immune to abuse: public or private, religious or secular, rich or poor, urban or rural.
  • Responses to Allegations of Sexual Abuse of Students by Staff
  • 38.7% of the teachers resigned, left the district, or retired
  • 17.5% were spoken to informally
  • 15% were terminated or not re-hired
  • 11.3% received a formal verbal or written reprimand
  • 8.1% were suspended and then resumed teaching
  • 7.5% were cases where the superintendent determined that the teacher hadn’t meant to sexually abuse
  • Of the nearly 54% of abusers who resigned, weren’t rehired, retired, or were terminated, superintendents reported that 16% were teaching in other schools and that they didn’t know what had happened to the other 84%. All but 1% of these teachers retained their teaching license.
  • Teacher Student Sex Legalities
  • In 20 states, it is not a crime for school employees—including teachers, administrators, and coaches—to have sex with students aged 16 and over.
  • In 23 states, it is not a crime for school employees to have sex with students aged 17 and over.
  • In 45 states, it is not a crime for school employees to have sex with students aged 18 and over.
  • In 16 states, it is a crime for adults in a position of trust and authority—teachers, administrators, and coaches among them—to have sex with students under the age of 18.
  • Child Pornography and the Internet
  • It is estimated that 500 million people worldwide will be connected to the Internet by 2003.
  • There are an estimated 100,000 Web sites involved in some way with child pornography.
  • The U.S. Customs Cyber Smuggling Center in Fairfax, Virginia, has reviewed more than 10,000 tips since January 2000.
  • A 1999 U.S. Customs case revealed a child pornography Web site that in its first three months recorded nearly 150,000 hits and the download of 3.2 million images.
  • Since 1992, the U.S. Customs Service has arrested more than 1,000 people on charges related to child pornography. Customs has never lost a case that has gone to the judicial process — defendants have either pleaded guilty or have been convicted.
  • Almost 24 million children ages 10 to 17 were online regularly in 1999.
  • A survey conducted in 2000 of 1,501 U.S. children ages 10 to 17 showed that about 1 in 4 had had unwanted exposure to an image of naked people or people having sex in the previous year.
  • Roughly 1 in 5 children had received a sexual solicitation or approach.
  • One in 33 children had received an aggressive solicitation, meaning that someone asked them to meet somewhere, or called on the phone, or sent them a regular e-mail, money or gifts.
  • Less than 10 percent of sexual solicitations and only 3 percent of unwanted exposure episodes were ever reported to authorities, including law enforcement agencies or Internet providers.
  • Arrests for possessing and distributing child pornography have been climbing steadily, in part because federal agencies are devoting more resources to the issue.
  • In fiscal year 1992, U.S. Customs recorded 57 arrests for possession of child pornography transported across borders, 48 indictments and 69 convictions.
  • By 2000, those numbers had grown to 320 arrests, 299 indictments and 324 convictions.
