Liverpool success

3 posts in this topic

One lesson applied by the abolitionists is that men who rape prostitutes are not convicted because it is too hard to convict.

Liverpool says this is not the case. Detection of rapes against sex workers increased from 5.6 (2006/2007) percent to 40 percent last year. On top of that there is a 90% conviction rate.

Shouldn't that read 90% of the cases that the CPS refer to the courts are successfully prosecuted?

The article would be more useful if the full picture were known.

That was insinuated by 40% of. There are quite a few links I have to the police site where they give a bit of information on who they work with. You have got to look at these figures where in general only 6% (i think) of rapes result in conviction.
