Animal sex abuse occurs all over the world, and is other connected to other criminal behavior. Incidents involve a spectrum of behavior. There is no single profile of an animal sex offender; however, certain psychological and behavioral characteristics tend to fall into broad groups as do the criminal acts committed. Below you will find how cases tend to cluster along with one or more examples. This categorization is based on independent research and is not meant to be used as a legal definition or psychological asssessment of any individual offender.
We maintain a comprehensive NIBRS-level database of arrested, convicted, and suspected offenders. If you are a detective, enforcement officer, or prosecutor, and need detailed information, don't hesitate to directly.
