Sex Crime Filler
Amongst serious crimes such as murder or robbery, a sex crime is considered the violent crime in the US. Sex crimes include rape and sexual assaults. In order to minimize the sexual assault and rape, statutory rape law is applicable under which a person is incapable legally to consent to carry sexual intercourse unless that person reaches a certain age. This law further maintains that even if the sexual intercourse carried within that age with the consent of the person is not considered consensual. The person below that age involved in this intercourse is considered a victim.
Such an act is included in sex crime and can also be called rape. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) started two projects in order to identify and test the right methods to collect data on rape and sexual assault.
