Sex crimes are treated very seriously in Florida and the sentences are usually severe. The justice system implements heavy sentences to try to reduce the chances of recidivism.
Courts use various psychological testing results to set a punishment that fits the crime. Abel Assessment for Sexual Interest is one of the most common psychological tests used in court.
Abel Assessment for Sexual Interest
The Abel Assessment is a measurement tool that gathers psychological information that a patient might not want to share but that could have a significant impact on the criminal sentence.
Many people wonder how favorable test results from the Abel Assessment can lessen sex crime charges. The answer lies in the results. The Abel Assessment gathers insights on the sexual interest of the accused.
- Does the accused have an instinctive attraction to children?
- Is the accused exclusively attracted to children or also attracted to adults?
- Does the accused have other problematic sexual interests?
Courts use the answers of the computerized test to decide the fate of the accused. Knowing that favorable testing results can lessen sex crime charges, defense lawyer Jonathan Rose can use the information to build a strong case for his client.
