Abstract
This study explored the extent to which prisoner’s sociodemographic variables such as age, formal education, marital status, employment, childhood experiences etc. influenced the commission of sex offence. Total participants consisted of 54 male convicted inmates undergoing imprisonment for either rape or an attempt to rape. Age range of these convicts was 20 to 70 years, but only 18.51 percent subjects were of age 45 and above. Most were in their late adolescence. Sample selection was done on the basis of random sampling. Each interview took around 30-40 minutes. Semi-structured interview method was used to collect the information. It was found that, the involvement in sex offence diminishes with age. Education may help in reducing the crime rate. It was observed that 98 percent of victims of sex offence are known to perpetrators. Stranger rape is very rare. Most of the sex offences are against minor, the reason can be children are passive, dependent, psychologically less threatening than adults and are easy to manipulate. The study indicates being into any long-term relationship has no impact on a person’s tendency to commit sexual offence. Childhood family environment had no significant impact on individual committing sex offence.
