Child Incest (5047_1)

Request

I am interested in the number of cases of incest reported since 1st January 2000 to present. To be comparable with the data I have received from Police Scotland, could these be broken down into individual years and whether they were detected or undetected? It is recognized that any figures provided will be by the year reported to the police, and may be a historical offence only reported to the police at that time, and therefore may not have taken place in the year reported.

 

Additionally I am interested in the number of child sexual abuse cases reported during the same time period, broken down in the same fashion.

 

1. In terms of the Incest information request:

 

I am interested in a count of reported incest cases in terms of the following sections of the sexual offences act 2003

 

S25 Sexual activity with a child family member

S26 Inciting a child family member to engage in sexual activity

S64 Sex with an adult relative: Penetration

S65 Sex with an adult relative: Consenting to Penetration

 

I would appreciate these to be broken down by year, offence and detected/undetected.

It is recognised that this act did not commence until 1 May 2004 and that the count will reflect this.

 

 

2. In terms of the Child Sexual Abuse request:

 

I am interested in a count of reported Child Sexual Abuse cases in terms of the following sections of the sexual offences act 2003

 

5. Rape of a child under 13

6. Assault of a child under 13 by penetration

7. Sexual assault of a child under 13

8. Causing or inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity

9. Sexual activity with a child

10. Causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity

11. Engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child

12. Causing a child to watch a sexual act

13. Child sex offences committed by children or young persons

16. Abuse of position of trust: sexual activity with a child

17. Abuse of position of trust: causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity

18. Abuse of position of trust: sexual activity in the presence of a child

19. Abuse of position of trust: causing a child to watch a sexual act

20. Abuse of position of trust: acts done in Scotland

 

I would appreciate these to be broken down by year, offence and detected/undetected.

It is recognised that this act did not commence until 1 May 2004 and that the count will reflect this.
