In line with Karen J. Terry

about Sex Crime in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Sexual offenses differ from other criminal offenses in many ways, particularly in that they are private offenses that often take place in the home of the perpetrator and/or the victim. They are crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary) of secrecy, rather than public crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary), and as such, sexual offenses are difficult to prevent. The police response is almost always one of control after the crime has been committed. There are some public attacks committed by strangers, yet these are not nearly as common as offenses committed by acquaintances or intimates. Because of the high level of secrecy involved in this type of offense, sex crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary) are difficult to investigate. There are two primary roles in the investigation of sex crimes (there is more information about criminal law in the American Legal Encyclopedia and about crimes and criminals vocabulary): that of the police and that of the hospital collecting evidence.
