The world’s most notorious sex offenders are still alive and well
An extensive report published by the U.K.’s Telegraph newspaper today details the world’s highest profile sex offenders who have remained undetected despite being accused of hundreds of offences over the years.
The study found that the world had an average of 14 registered sex offenders on U.S. sex offender registries, but only five men and one woman were living inside the United States.
“We know that the United Kingdom’s registry is not perfect,” said Richard Cockerham, a researcher at the UCL Centre for Criminology.
“But there is a general understanding that we are not a perfect country.
We are very far from being perfect, but we are a very good country.”
Cockerhill, who has researched sex offenders in the U of T’s criminal justice system for years, and who co-authored the report, said that while the U, U.C.L.A. and the UCCL study did not include information on all U. S. registered sex offender households, they did include information for the top 10 offenders.
“What is interesting is that the top offenders are clustered in the top ten cities,” he said.
“In the UCT and the [UCCL] study, we were looking at the top 100 offenders in terms of number of offences.
But in the United K, we’ve only looked at the Top 100 offenders, so we have only the Top 10 offenders.”
The top 10 most prolific offenders included serial killers, drug dealers, sex traffickers and child predators.
Cockerhills findings echo what a previous study from the University of Toronto found, which found that one in three U. C.
L,L.U. students were a sex offender, while one in six were suspected or convicted of committing a sex offence in the city.
“There’s a general perception that we’re not doing anything to protect the public, but the statistics just don’t support that,” Cockerhaw said.
In the United states, there are about 200 registered sex crimes per 100,000 residents, with the UK. and Canada accounting for the highest rate.
The United States’ registered sex offenses include child molestation, rape, sexual abuse and assault, among others.
“When you think about the size of the U and Canada’s populations, the number of registered sex offences in the country is about one in five people, compared to about one-in-five in the rest of the world,” Cockham said.
The U. U.CCL found that only one in four U. K. and one in seven U. L.C., Canada’s two largest cities, were fully protected by the federal government.
But the UofT study found more than one-third of U.B.C.-based registered sex predators lived in cities with populations of more than 500,000, while the majority of UofS-based offenders lived in communities with populations under 200,000.
The report concluded that “it is imperative that we keep this issue of sex offending out of the media.”
It also pointed out that there is currently no effective strategy to combat the problem.
“It’s been known for a long time that the public does not know where they’re going to find the people they need to be safe,” said Cocker.
“If you want to keep the problem out of media and out of people’s heads, you have to work with the public and the media to get them to know the people who are in their midst.”
