Cross, Theodore P.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n12 p1431-42 Dec 1995
This study examined the progress and disposition of child sexual abuse cases referred for prosecution in four urban jurisdictions. Most cases were accepted for prosecution. Most cases carried forward for prosecution resulted in guilty pleas. Only nine percent of the total sample went to trial. A majority of those were convicted. Over three-fourths of those convicted were incarcerated. (Author/DB)
