A characteristic of persons convicted for crimes against sexual inviolability and sexual freedom, who now serve criminal sentence in the form of imprisonment in Russia 1307
The contribution is devoted to the problem of research of persons convicted for crimes against sexual inviolability and sexual freedom of the person. The authors put persons convicted under articles 131-135 of the Russian Criminal Code into this category.
