Pedophiles Tracked On Register

ALL convicted pedophiles will be placed on a register for up to 15 years with repeat offenders incurring a lifetime listing under legislation to be introduced to the South Australian Parliament this year.
Police Minister Kevin Foley yesterday touted the Child Sex Offender Register as "the most significant crackdown in the state's history" against "the evil" of pedophilia.
The register will feed into a national database. Accessible only by police, it will be retrospective and will include all details of child sex offenders.
Pedophiles will be required to report annually to police and notify authorities about changes in personal details and travel plans outside SA.
"Even if they get a new tattoo, they will have to report that to police, and if they don't that will also be an offence," Mr Foley said.
Mr Foley said Cabinet yesterday approved a draft Bill to establish the register, first announced by the State Government two years ago in response to recommendations from the Layton inquiry into child protection.
Opposition legal affairs spokesman Robert Lawson condemned delays in establishing the register and said it should be accessible by groups including schools and sporting clubs.
Superintendent Grant Stevens, officer in charge of the sexual crime investigation branch, expected the register to be operating within eight months and said it would bring SA in line with other states.
The register will require offenders convicted of "class one" offences such as rape, incest and unlawful sexual intercourse to be placed on the register for 15 years. Those convicted of "class two" offences, including indecent assault of a child and possession of child pornography, will be listed for eight years.
Also yesterday:
THE Opposition tabled a Bill to allow the transcript of a sex crime victim's evidence to be presented in court if a retrial occurs so the victim does not have to testify twice.
OPPOSITION correctional services spokesman Angus Redford raised concerns at least five prisoners including two child sex offenders will be released into the community in the next two months because the Government had "failed" to remove automatic parole for prisoners.
THE Attorney-General, Michael Atkinson, blamed the Opposition's "focus" on setting up an Upper House parliamentary inquiry into the Ashbourne affair for the parole matter not passing through Parliament.

Paedophile Register

A National child sex offender register was launched yesterday, with the federal government declaring it a major step forward in protecting children against pedophiles.
Justice Minister Chris Ellison said all states and territories would be able to place pedophile information on the register and that information would be available only to police.
"It is enormously important that we have a database to keep track of pedophiles and those people who commit serious offences against children," he said.
