This research paper discusses the history of child sex offending, the legal definitions of sex offender and sexual predator, why they abuse, and who they are. The paper looks at theories and assessment, treatment, and civil commitment. It lists the seven reasons child sexual predators are so dangerous and the weapons they utilize, including manipulation and secrecy.
From the Paper:"Sex offenders report regularly to probation officers, who ensure they follow the rules; to social workers who provide psychological support and services; and to polygraph examiners who can assess an offender's truthfulness about contacts with children or possession of pornography (Waters, 2004). "The more structure that is given to a sex offender, the fewer sexual re-offenses occur", says Charles Onley, researcher associate with the Center for Sex Offender Management (Waters, 2004)."
