Deconstructing incidents of female perpetrated sex crimes: comparing female sexual offender groupings.

Summary: Examines data from 1992-2012 on incidents of sexual offending committed by four groupings of female sexual offenders (FSOs): solo (29,238), coed pairs (one male and one female) (11,112); all female groups (2,669); and multiple perpetrator groups consisting of 3 or more FSOs and male sexual offenders (4,268). Finds that solo FSOs and all-female groups have similar characteristics, and coed pairs and multiple perpetrators have similar characteristics and that these categorisations are distinct from each other.
