Abstract

Although it is necessary to avoid hasty conclusions based strictly on biological explanations, what are the consequences for criminal justice if the origin of paedophilic crimes is the result of biological propensities? In order to protect society in the long term, the purpose of this paper is to examine whether the applicability of an exclusive retributive justice is appropriated to tackle paedophilic crime.
