The ‘Net Made Me Do It

Just got back from a meeting where I had to listen to supervisory issues for an hour before I gave my 30-second update on my project.

One interesting thing:

Apparently the sex offender specialists are seeing a new category of offender: someone who has no criminal record or prior history of illegal sexual behavior, normal family background, etc., yet they get on the internet and suddenly become interested in child pornography. In most cases, there is no proof that the person ever touched anyone underage, and some considerable question as to whether they ever would. The solution is to err on the side of caution, of course. So far, there just isn’t enough experience with this type of offender to know what’s happening, and it’s got the experts baffled.

I find this fascinating.
