Episode 059: Jim Clemente – Preventing the Sexual Victimization of Children

Retired agent Jim Clemente served in the FBI for 22 years. Prior to joining the FBI, Clemente was a prosecutor in the Child Sex Crimes Prosecution Team in the Bronx, New York. His first FBI duty assignment was in the New York Field Division’s Joint FBI/NYPD Sexual Exploitation of Children Task Force. After assignments in Little Rock Division and the Washington Field Office, Clemente was appointed as a supervisory special agent in the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico, VA. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review with Jerri Williams, Jim Clemente is interviewed as a follow-up to prior episodes focused on child abductions and child sexual predators. As a nationally recognized expert in the fields of sex crimes investigations, sex offender behavior and child pornography, he has investigated and consulted on thousands of cases involving serial murder, serial rape, child abduction, sex crimes, homicide, threats, bombings and the sexual victimization of children. In his work, he has interviewed hundreds of victims and offenders. He is a host of the popular true crime podcast Real Crime Profile and also serves as a writer and producer for Criminal Minds, the long-running CBS FBI crime drama. Jim Clemente is the author of the crime novel Without Consent, a fictionalized account of his personal loss of innocence at the hands of a child sex offender.

    Every parent should listen to this podcast. I just sent links to both my goddaughters with young children. They think Aunt Mary worries too much about crime/safety and I think they are way too naive about the world. I hope they listen in particular to the part about grooming and talking sex with your kids from the start. I love you Jerri, please don’t stop bringing these amazing stories by retired agents to us.

    Another great podcast with Jim Clemente. Very interesting and hopefully will never have to use his information. But realize how important Amber Alerts are and how quickly children must be found.

      Thank you. It was certainly a valuable episode.
