Male Juveniles with Sexual Behavior Problems: Are There Differences among Racial Groups?
Ikomi, Philip A.; Rodney, H. Elaine; McCoy, Tana
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v18 n2 p154-173 2009
This study used archival data on a sample of 186,492 referrals from a southwestern state Juvenile Probation Commission to compare the characteristics of 5,439 male Black, Hispanic, and White juveniles with sexual behavior problems on the five most common sexual offenses in the data set. The characteristics of 181,053 juveniles of the three races without sexual behavior problems were also compared on the basis of the seven most common nonsexual offenses. The bases of comparison were the seven variables: reported incidence of sexual offenses, the primary caregivers or living arrangements, age, suspected sexual abuse, suspected emotional abuse, suspected physical abuse, and special education status, on which racial differences were found. Prevention and treatment implications of findings are discussed. (Contains 7 tables and 2 figures.)
