Do those who start earlier desist earlier or is it that the earlier one starts, the later one stops? In answer to this, we can only say at this stage of our knowledge that the age of desistance shows considerable variations. What accounts for the fact that some offenders quit earlier than others? We actually do not know and in fact we might learn something of interest about criminal behavior if we could find out how those who drop out at different points along this curve of progressive decline in incidence differ from one another (see Roth, 1968).

On the other hand, few precocious and curious young girls (or boys) may try to satisfy their sexual curiosity and/or awakening desires by making advances to old and unsuspecting individuals and may in certain instances be the initiators rather than the seduced. The fact is, most elderly offenders, accused of sexual molestation of young and apparently consenting victims, claim to have been seduced by the little girls or boys themse1ves. In many cases this is probably a defence, similar to the claim that the offence was committed under the influence of alcohol when the offender was not fully aware of what was happening and not in full control of his actions.

Covey and Menard found that absolute numbers of arrests have been increasing over time for both the non-elderly population and the population 65 and over. For most of the Index crimes, the pattern of increase has been fairly consistent. The exceptions are auto theft, which has had alternating periods of increasing and then decreasing arrests, and homicide, which has had a similar but less pronounced pattern of alteration. Comparing the elderly to the non-elderly population, overall increases in arrests have been less for the elderly than the non- elderly population for all crimes except auto-theft (and total index offenses).
