Grant, 163 page(s)
This national analysis of Federal prosecutions of cases that involved the commercial sexual exploitation of children and youth (CSEC) focused on whether existing laws related to CSEC are being enforced, the key features of successful CSEC cases, the factors that predict convictions, the factors that predict sentence length, whether U.S. courts have increased penalties for sexual crimes against children, and the effects of CSEC legislation on service providers who work with these victims.
