Was the 95% WERE found to have been abused- or was it 95% of abusers who were caught CLAIMED to have been abused? There IS a difference and it's possible that someone capable of doing such an evil act could make that claim to evade punishment.
Except that doesn't get them out of any punishment. It's not considered a mitigating factor for adults, at least, not here. Your jurisdiction may differ.

I don't think it's much of a mitigating factor anywhere, and shouldn't be. I think we can have compassion for damaged people, but... I can't let 'em off the hook for crimes.

Put it this way: I think it's a safe bet that 95% of these evil folks would prefer having pollsters pity them ['You poor dear'!] as opposed to just thinking them worthless monsters [which they ARE]. Unless they somehow were able to follow molesters' entire lives back to infancy, there's no way the data can be irrefutably accurate- and molesters are notorious for lying and manipulating so why would anyone think they're above doing to same to pollsters? Not only do I not think they can be trusted, I also don't think they can believed!

The data can be VERY accurate if it's gathered correctly.
