1. Thompson, Katy M. Victim-offender Characteristics on Sexual Assault Crimes.

Degree: MA, Criminal Justice, 2013, Penn State University

The proposed study hopes to establish typologies of sexual offenders and victims by examining variables that measure criminal histories, lifestyle, and circumstances surrounding each incident. It is hoped that by analyzing court dockets describing the nature of these incidents will allow more effective targeting of preventative measures aimed at protecting potential victims and deterring potential offenders within situations of greater risk probability. This study found that the common type of assault in Dauphin County correlates to the “Classic Rape Scenario,” whereas most assaults involved black males and white females. Findings showed that most offenses occurred between persons who knew one another. Future research and policy implications are discussed for ways to educate criminal justice personnel on the commonalities of sexual offenses.
