All Sexual Criminals are not Psychopaths: perception and reality


It is extremely important to realise that sexual crime is largely confused with a psychological crime when it is committed atrociously. However, sexual and psychological crimes are different in their motive, action and commission. To understand the difference between the two it is necessary to study the details of these types of crime and criminals.

Sexual criminals commit a crime involving sexual abuse, like - incest, rape, child abuse and sodomy due to lust, revenge, obsession, pleasure, fun and sometimes due to mental disease. Psychological crime can be attributed to various mental diseases like insanity, schizophrenia, split-personality, unsoundness of mind and psychopathy. In the present context, the general tendency is to label every sexual criminal, a psychopath, whereas, in reality, the two are broadly different from each other.

This paper attempts to flag that, Mens rea plays a very important role to distinguish any crime. This paper differentiates between sexual criminals and psychopaths with the help of ten case laws. Seven cases are of the different motives and forms of sexual crimes and three of psychopaths in which motive was a disease. Finally, based on the mens rea an attempt has been made to understand the intricacies between the perception and the reality between the two.

In recent time, I begin to wonder why most broken relationships occur due to cheating. It’s hard to find someone who will love you wholeheartedly like you loved them. Owing to lack of self respect for their partner or lack of being contented with their partner. I’ve heard several stories from friends and colleagues how they fall off their relationship due to catching their spouse’s in the cheating acts. That was how I got a recommendation about (Remotespytech @ Gmail) com who helped me remotely access my suspecting cheating girlfriend’s in her ways. I was able to see all of her texts, calls, IG chats etc while I was away on a business trip to the UK I could see all of her activities on her phone without physical touch as if I got her phone with me. I felt this was impossible but Remotespytech made it easy and user friendly, I was able to figure out she’s dating a guy downtown all along our relationship, it’s really devastating and sad to see this but I’m finally happy I got my peace of mind restored. I got Remotespytech referral from my friend and I got to believe after seeing many recommendations over the internet. His services are topnotched, genuine and timely, are you in need of a similar assistance and you’ve been ripped off couple of times. Remotespytech is the real deal to reach out to and get a lasting solution to your abusive and disgraceful relationship. Email: REMOTESPYTECH (@) GMAILCOM Whatsapp: +13523543740 Best Review
