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.
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.
