Statutory rape cases up 36% in 2009

Postby tankee » Tue Feb 09, 2010 10:31 am

extracted from CNA.

SINGAPORE: Police are concerned about the rise in the number of statutory rape cases in Singapore.

In their annual crime briefing on Monday, the police said statutory rape cases involving female minors under 14 years who had consensual sex rose 36.1 per cent from 61 in 2008 to 83 cases in 2009.

Eighty-eight per cent of the offenders were people the victims knew: boyfriends, friends and acquaintances.

Police said the widespread use of social-networking websites among youths may be one reason for the upswing. Such websites may expose youths to situations that lead to statutory rape.

The police expect the upward trend to continue due to changing values among youths and their exposure to Internet influences.

"This is where it is important for the parents to know, and move in or work with us to guide their children, educate their children on certain behaviours and social norms," the police said........

Actually, since this is consensual sex, the victim should know the offender. It is more alarming that 12% of the offenders are total strangers to the victim.
