What is wrong with the child predator laws in the State of Texas
With statistics like this, I think I am reasonably justified in being concerned about this person. I astounds me that the state of Texas has no law specifying that child molesters must stay away from schools, playgrounds, day care centers, or any other place where children congregate, but yet it does not, and that needs to change.
• Recidivism rates range from 18-45%. The more violent the crime the more likelihood of repeating.
-Studies by the state of Washington.
• 3 in 10 child victimizers reported that they had committed their crimes against multiple victims: they were more likely than those who victimized adults to have had multiple victims.
-BJS Survey of State Prison Inmates, 1991.
• Like rape, child molestation is one of the most underreported crimes: only 1-10% are ever disclosed.
-FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin.
• The behavior is highly repetitive, to the point of compulsion, rather than resulting from a lack of judgment.
-Dr. Ann Burges, Dr. Nicholas Groth, et al. in a study of imprisoned offenders.
