Athletes and Acquaintance Rape


Volume: 8
Other Titles in:
Rape & Sex Crimes

June 1998 | 120 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book takes a provocative look at specific aspects of professional athletic life that contribute to a climate favourable to athletes sexually assaulting women - a climate which also protects offenders from conviction and punishment.

The book focuses on three high-profile incidents, and concludes that the problem is generated more by celebrity than athletic prowess: jurors are unable to reach an unbiased verdict because the athletes are held in such high esteem by the public.
