Angelita Maria F. Machado Rios e Lilian Milnitsky Stein
The evaluation of sexual offenses against children and adolescents is complex due to the limitation of evidence. In this study, interviews were conducted with 18 participants, nine of them from the investigative stage (Police Officers) and nine from the procedural stage (five Prosecutors and four Judges of Law acting on the area of Children and Youth). The authorities expressed their views on the analysis of the following evidence: the word of the victim, physical traces, other evidences (witnesses, school reports, reports from health and psychosocial professionals) and the confession of the suspect.
