Sex Offenders To Face Indefinite Jail

SEX offenders and rapists could be locked up indefinitely at NSW Government discretion under proposed new laws.
The attorney-general could apply for an indefinite number of continuing detention orders under the Bill, expected to be introduced into parliament in coming weeks.
The orders would apply to offences which carry sentences of seven years or more, and would extend jail terms by five years once the original term expires.
Discretion would be based on the likelihood of re-offending.
NSW Premier Morris Iemma is unapologetic about the strict changes.
"I make no apologies that these measures are tough," Mr Iemma told The Daily Telegraph newspaper.
"But they will only be used in cases where there is an ongoing risk to the community.
"The powers will apply to the most vile sexual predators who, despite lengthy prison sentences, show no sign of rehabilitation or who pose an ongoing threat to the community."
