135. Don't hang your hat on that.
Sociopathic offenders, including child molesters, are usually very well organized and quite capable of scripting out every aspect of their crimes. That is why rapists, serial rapists, serial killers and others are often so hard to catch. They are predators, and as such have the kind of intelligence and canniness to allow them to offend again by staying one step ahead of the law, by planning evey detail of their acts.

It can be a game for them, a competition with law enforcement. The history of this is extremely well-documented.

Sociopathic serial offenders have some of the best-ordered minds going. The trouble is that in what they are talented at, well...society finds that something less them helpful, withing the bounds of normative behavior.
