Interview with a Pedophile


For this task, imagine that you are assigned to a case of a known pedophile. He/she has been arrested after sexually perpetrating a 6-year-old boy. Develop 15 questions and answers that you would ask the perpetrator that would assist you (and the investigators) in potentially identifying other victims. Your suspect is willing to speak to you, so your responses should be comprehensive. Your assignment should include the questions, answers, and a summary (in APA format) that discuss what you learned from speaking to the suspect—at least one theory that applies to your findings. Also, include in your summary your personal feelings about speaking with a pedophile and how you ethically and professionally handled the difficult subject matter.

Length: 2-3 pages

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.

Question #1: Are you attracted to children?

Pedophile: Most definitely, I am.

Question #2: How can you explain your attraction?

Pedophile: It is a dark truth that most people don’t want to sympathize with it. My attraction to children is part of who I am, and it’s not that I want t to be attracted to them. I just can’t help it. One cannot help who they are attracted to.

Question #3: Have you ever been sexually abused as a child?

Pedophile: Yeah, I have been abused severally. My neighbor, who was two years older than me, sexually abused me, and even though I did not like it, he continued until I got to a point where I liked it. The craving doesn’t stop even when you become an adult.

Question #4: When you were molesting that boy, did you feel like you were doing something wrong?

Pedophile: Yes, I felt I was doing a wrong thing, but I cannot help who I am. Although I understand that there are attractions that healthy and certain ones that aren’t, I did not choose my attractions. I have tried therapy and medication, but nothing seems to stop these urges …………for help with this assignment contact us via Email Address:
