Based on some researches, the most number of rape cases comes from these countries: Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom, India, Sweden, South Africa, and the United States of America.

Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/30/2015 -- Sex crimes are one of the most predominant types of heinous crimes in the world; and are actually becoming more and more rampant especially in advanced or developed countries. There have been a lot of controversies when it comes to reporting and documenting incidences because of the inconsistencies in terms of the how rape was defined, incidence rates, number of actual reported cases, number of prosecuted and convicted criminals involved in the crime.

But based on the United Nations documents, there have been around 250,000 cases of rape, whether they are actually committed or attempted. This report was based on the statistics that were compiled from 65 countries. And although there may be a lot of cases that have already been reported, there are still a huge percentage of those that were not actually reported because of the social stigma of being a rape victim. Reporting of the case have been said to be daunting in some countries as victims pointed out that some police officers would sometimes discourage the victims to report their case; these cases were said to have transpired in Turkey. And based on the research conducted in this specific country, the 33% of police officers are admissive of the fact that "some women deserved to be raped" and around 66% of the police population beli9eved that the appearance and behavior of the women brought about the incidence.

Based on some researches, the most number of rape cases comes from these countries: Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom, India, Sweden, South Africa, and the United States of America.

But, what does really happen to victims of this horrible and ghastly sex crimes? People who have been sexually abused during their childhood years may not actually manifest the negative effect right away, but their behavior and personality would speak of what has been and what violence they have been through during their dreadful past. These people may become really hostile and antagonistic; and based on the records of most criminals, they have once in their lives have undergone different forms of violence such as battery, sexual assault, maltreatment and neglect. Victims of sex crimes are the ones who are more engaged in delinquent and felonious activities and because they have developed the aggression and hostility, they in turn turn to sexual offenders themselves.

Sexual violence does not just affect the person physically, but it could also destroy their emotional, psychological and spiritual; state. Some victims would resort in self-inflicted injuries and may even attempt or commit suicide because of extreme depression. Victims become really shaken and would sometimes get into severe anxiety attacks and they would sometimes behave in a way that is entirely different from their own personality. Trusting would become very difficult for these people, therefore they become very distant, isolated, and dissociated from reality.

Like any other types of crimes, sex crimes bring about a lot of negative outcomes to the victims and to the society; but incidences should be reported and documented accurately and promptly so that sex offenders would be put behind bars with the help of an exceptional Los Angeles sex crimes lawyer. Achieving the justice that these victims truly deserve would be complicated and daunting, but with the help of an excellent lawyer, justice will be served in time.
