12. No, I meant what I said.

 

Most (but not all) sexual assaults are a one time occurrence in a victim's life. However the offender is more often than not a multiple offender, and may go on without ever being apprehended, and the only thing to stop them is either prison or death, and not all offenders go to prison, nor do they necessarily stop offending once released from a prison sentence. Some offenders are previous victims, and some have never been previous victims.

So the nature of randomness is much different than one in 365, etc.
