2016 Virginia Crime Report


In 2016 the Virginia Crime Report for the prior year was online to view by June 3rd and in 2015 I found it by June 7th but this year for some reason it took until June 30th. 

Last 6 Years of Sex Crimes in Virginia At-a-Glance:
  • 2016-   Group A Offense  433,959 crimes of those 5,220 were forcible sex offenses, that’s 1.27%
  • 2015 -  Group A Offense  441,355 crimes of those  4,787 were forcible sex offenses, that’s  1.08%
  • 2014 -  Group A Offense 444,022 crimes of those 4,668 were forcible sex offenses, that’s  1.05%
  • 2013 -  Group A Offense 456,160 crimes of those  4,590 were forcible sex offenses, that’s  1.00%
  • 2012 -  Group A Offense 472,836 crimes of those  4,771 were forcible sex offenses, that’s   1.11%
  • 2011 -   Group A Offense 479,582 crimes of those  4,768 were forcible sex offenses, that’s  0.99%  

There were 5,529 victims of the 5,220 forcible sex offenses (up from 2015) reported by the contributing agencies; 86.09% of the victims were female. 
 
The breakdown of Group A Offenses totals 433,959 crimes (down from 2015) for:
  • Forcible Sex Offenses were 1.27% of all the offenses
  • Non-Forcible Sex Offenses were 0.39% of all the offenses
  • Pornography* was 0.299% of all the offenses
  • Prostitution was 1.105% of all the offenses
* - I could not determine if the Pornography category includes all or some of the variety of charges including Production, Distribution, Sale and Possession. I’m guessing all of the above but in reality Possession should be separate as no physical contact ever occurred with the possessor and the victim in the image. I also wonder what category a charge of on-line communication with a minor (usually a cop) and/or solicitation of a minor gets put into. -Mary

*- Notice the increase from last year, I’m betting it’s due to the creation of new Human Trafficking crimes -Mary
