In the use of sexual battery kit there are following evidential value come in front of the investigators:

Question # 2
Differences between obscenity and pornography
Obscenity is sexual words and imagery which are not secluded by legitimate assurances of free speech. To be unlawfully obscene, an effort must petition to the prurient interests, portray sex in a deliberately unpleasant means, and not have serious mythical, creative, supporting or technical worth.
Pornography is matter intended to stimulate and has no lawful or reliable meaning. Each person's report depends on her education, sexual favorite and viewing background. One woman's "trash" may be another's money or tedium (LaFree, 1980, P: 833-50).
It is an undeniable fact that sex in pornography or in obscenity both are the forms of sex crimes because these both situations violate the societal norms and values that are designed to maintain the disciplinary decorum of the society.

We should make this society job oriented enough so that people should have constructive works to perform (Mather, 1979).
Juvenile sex offenders are the desperate people who are not satisfied with their status in the society so it is necessary to give them extra attention in order to rehabilitate them. In case of women offenders it is necessary to give them proper rules of spending life and guide them towards the principles that can help them in spending their lives successfully.
