Abstract

The overall objective of this study was to determine some of the factors associated with adolescent child sexual abusers. To obtain this objective, the following factors were addressed by the researcher: (a) previous victimization, and (b) current perpetrators. Percentages and the frequency distribution data analysis was used as a research design for this study. A self-administered questionnaire was given to 20 adolescent sex offenders in Atlanta Youth Development Center, located in Atlanta, Georgia.

The results showed that there was a relationship between the variables and adolescent child sexual abusers. The two prominent factors were previous victimization and current perpetrators.
