The study is devoted to criminal legal and penitentiary features of counteraction to criminal attacks on the sexual inviolability of minors. The goal is to analyze the criminal legal and penitentiary methods of combating crime directed against the sexual inviolability of minors, provided for in the national criminal and executive legislation of Kazakhstan, the USA, and European countries. The study examines the international organizational and legal experience of protecting minors and norms of criminal legislation. Based on the research of the materials on criminal and executive law and experience of different countries in the field of combating crimes against sexual inviolability of minors, the authors propose further improvement of the criminal legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan, in terms of protecting minors from sexual assault. In particular, the necessity of introducing voluntary chemical castration as a prerequisite for mitigating punishment, changing the type of punishment, and early release for persons who committed these crimes for the first time is substantiated. The main provisions and conclusions of the study can be used in scientific and practical activities when considering the issues of crime prevention and the effectiveness of the norms on crimes against sexual inviolability of minors, as well as in subsequent reform of the norms of criminal and executive legislation in the field of sexual freedom and inviolability.
