    Criminal Justice Ethics examines the criminal justice system through an ethical lens by identifying ethical issues in practice and theory, exploring ethical dilemmas, and offering suggestions for resolving ethical issues and dilemmas faced by criminal justice professionals. Bestselling author Cyndi Banks draws readers into a unique discussion of ethical issues by first exploring moral dilemmas. However, a tendency exists for criminological research to focus on the measurement of rape and sexual assault victimization, risk assessment for victims, variation in rates across groups and places, and legal reforms and their effects on the handling of such cases by the criminal justice system.

    It has been reported by the U.S. Department of Justice that only “31% of all rapes are reported to the authorities” (Arrigo, , p. ). This creates a problem in the criminal justice field because it is difficult to put a stop to rape when most people do not report their victimization. There are many reasons why rape is underreported. Using rape as a case study, Rape and Criminal Justice describes what happens at each stage of the criminal justice system, from initial police report to final sentence. Frequent examples make the processes even clearer.
