DOMINGUES, Daniela Fontoura  e  COSTA, Liana Fortunato. The Adolescent in Sexual Offense Situation: protection and responsibility to prevent recidivism. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.36, pp. 139-151. ISSN 1519-549X.

The sexual offense, also called sexual abuse, committed by adolescents is a complex and heterogeneous phenomenon that affects people of different beliefs, ethnicities, educational backgrounds and socioeconomic status. It occurs not only in an extrafamilial but also in an intrafamilial context. The sexual offense committed by adolescents is a topic little explored in Brazil and which lacks statistical data. This article discusses the importance of the mandatory reporting of the offensive act, as well as the adolescent protection and responsibility, based on the Child and Adolescent Statute. The text also argues that to prevent adolescent stigma it is necessary to respect their time of development and their transformation possibilities in order not to compare their behavior with adults who commit similar acts. Finally, alternatives to conventional justice are addressed with a view to prevent recidivism and to prospect a more promising future to adolescents.
