Crimes Against Children by Babysitters
(NCJ 189102) September 2001
OJJDP Crimes Against Children Series, Bulletin, 8 page(s)
Finkelhor, D., Ormrod, R.
Presents information on the frequency and nature of crimes committed against children by babysitters. As part of OJJDP's Crimes Against Children Series, the Bulletin draws on the FBI's National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) to examine victim and offender characteristics, including gender, age, type of injury, and victim-offender relationship. The Bulletin also presents an overview of how NIBRS works to collect a wide range of criminal information for a variety of offenses. The Bulletin concludes by examining the implications of NIBRS data, particularly in regard to the severity of threat posed to children by babysitters.
