We are frequently asked what the profile is for children who are victims of online child sex offenders. It is hard to describe the variation that I've experienced in my line of work. That is, we have come across kids who are very, very intelligent, and those who are not. Kids who are very, very popular, and kids who are not. Kids who are very, very rich and kids who are very, very poor. The point being that the average child who is a victim of a sex offense, doesn't really exist. The distribution around the population is so dramatic and so even, that it really is a miscalculation. Victims of child sex offense can look like anything. Victims of online sex offense can look like anything as well. The area of entry to the internet used to be significant. The family would have had to have purchased a computer and an internet connection. Now, with the affordability of a computer and the affordability of the internet is practically everybody can get on the internet. The distribution of vulnerability has increased dramatically.
