There are a very small percentage of men that commit rape, according to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, but the vast bulk of the crimes go unreported, and a small percentage are committed by men.
In an article published Tuesday by the Daily Caller, a conservative news site that has been at the forefront of reporting on campus sexual assault, author and former University of Virginia student Amy Chozick said there are a small number, perhaps five to 10 percent, of rapists who do not commit sexual assault.
“There’s a very low probability that most of the rapists who are going to jail are rapists,” Chozack told TheDCNF.
“But there are rapists out there that are not going to prison.”
Chozak is a member of the Women’s Center for Investigative Reporting, a nonprofit group that focuses on the intersection of women’s rights, civil rights, criminal justice and media.
In the piece, Chozck cites statistics that show there are only a handful of convictions of rapists in the United States.
Of the approximately 1,000 rapists who were sentenced in the US in the last five years, only a small fraction of them went to prison.
Chozkoz cites data from the National Center for State Courts that show that only about a quarter of those convicted of sexual assault went to jail.
She also cites a report from the Justice Department that found that there are no convictions of serial rapists, which means the number of rapists committed by one individual can be vastly larger than the number committed by a group of rapists.
The report found that out of 1,100 sexual assaults reported in the USA in 2009, only 4.4 percent were prosecuted.
Choszick also points to a 2011 study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania that found only 3 percent of sexual assaults in the U.S. were reported to law enforcement.
“I can tell you that the vast amount of men out there who are sexually assaulted by their partners are not, in fact, rapists,” she said.
“The vast amount are not sexually assaulting women.
They’re rapists who prey on women and prey on their families.”
Choswick said that if one were to focus only on rapists, there would be about one in five women who have been sexually assaulted.
“Women are not the only ones who are raped,” she explained.
“It’s not a crime. “
If you look across all of society, it’s a rape culture,” Chosozick added.
“It’s not a crime.
Chazen and Chozhosz also point out that many rapists go unpunished. “
And it is not something that we have to accept.”
Chazen and Chozhosz also point out that many rapists go unpunished.
“Even if they were prosecuted, the vast number of women who are abused by their spouses and by their abusers, or their partners, or by their family members, or even their husbands, would be incarcerated, and that’s because we don’t really believe that it’s ever going to be a criminal offense for a man to sexually assault a woman,” Chazend said.
The Huffington Post has reached out to the University to discuss the report and will update this article if and when we receive a response.
