What is it about?
A great deal of attention has been devoted to sexual molestation cases, both in theory and practice. Child molesters are versatile and are not easily identified. Various theories and tactics, the most contemporary of which is environmental criminology, have been developed to find those criminals. Locations of victims, crime scenes, and distances among them as well as other situational variables are used to predict possible future offenses in environmental criminology. This study applies the theory to sexual molestation crimes in Istanbul. Dependent distance variables are found to be correlated with several situational variables in a selected sample of 127 extra-familial child sexual molestation cases.

Why is it important?
The present study examines criminal cases that occurred in Istanbul, Turkey. Istanbul offers a perfect model reflecting both the socioeconomic status of the region and its peculiar criminal activities. Thus, addressing crime-oriented problems in Istanbul is important not only for the city itself but also for the region because of the representability of the city. Nonetheless, the literature lacks quality research on crimi-nal issues in the territory at the same time that there is an urgent need to address the safety problems caused by sexual molestation. As a result, the present study seeks to obtain and evaluate data that will help to address these research gaps.
