Public Heros Private Fellons: Athletes And Crimes Against Women

Athletes And Crimes Against Women

Public-Heroes-header200w While arrests of celebrated college and professional athletes for crimes against women escalate at an alarming rate, popular sports figures routinely escape accountablility for their offenses. Shielded by a lucrative sports industry that fosters the athlete's positive image as role model to the nation's youth, few players are successfully prosecuted in the courts and they rarely face sanctions on their eligibility to play.

Jeff Benedict thoroughly investigates ffor the first time athletes' abusive behavior, delving into the full spectrum of complex factors that give rise to and perpetuate the disturbing pattern of frequent sexual and domestic violence toward women. And, opposing the public stance of sports organizations, he offers compelling evidence that male athletes commit more crimes against women than do their peers.
