Sex offenses are serious crimes that can leave those accused with a ruined reputation. There are several statistics that show the number of sex crimes is dropping in Louisiana, despite the number of people charged with sex crimes every day. According to the Louisiana Foundation Against Sexual Assault, in 2009, forcible rapes were estimated at 30.3 per 100,000 inhabitants, so it's not as common as some would have you think.
Individual risk factors, like antisocial tendencies or hostility toward women, have been named as things to look out for when investigating sex crimes. That shouldn't be all there is to base the case on, though, since hostility could be circumstantial or antisocial tendencies could just be someone being shy. There are a number of ways to look at these supposed criminal characteristics, and they aren't always what they appear. Relationship factors include association with aggressive or delinquent peers, being in an unsupportive family environment or having a violent home life with few resources; these factors shouldn't immediately mean that someone accused of sexual assault is thought of as being guilty.
