Society outwardly projects strong disapproval and anger toward child molesters. A more conflictive area is when a child is pubescent and is sexually victimized. This represents a neglected area--one fraught with bias and attitudes regarding adolescent sexuality.
In order to deal effectively with this serious and complex problem, police officers and prosecutors must be aware of the dynamics of the organization, types, structure, victimology, and offender behavior involved in child pornography and sex rings. This awareness will increase the chances that offenders will be identified and effectively prosecuted and decrease the chances that child victims will be mistreated and further traumatized.
