Three Years

Three years is how long the average convicted child molester spends in prison. They receive an average of a seven-year sentence, but only three of those years are actually spent in jail. If that doesn't convince you that we're soft on pedophiles, consider this:
  • About one in five child molesters in prison has previously been arrested for a sex crime against a child.
  • Child molesters and statutory rapists had between a 23 and 81 percent chance of being rearrested for any crime within the next three years, depending on how many times they had previously been arrested.
  • About half of child molesters who are released have more then threes years left on their sentences.
  • About 1 in 20 child molesters released from prison was rearrested for other sex crime within just three years.
Does this sound like a society that's serious about protecting it's children?
