Tougher Sex Offender Restrictions Sought By Campaigners

Recommended Posts


Charities and an MP are campaigning for tougher restrictions on sex offenders, saying the system is failing to stop grooming and exploitation of children.

The "Childhood Lost" campaign says police also need powers to restrict suspects who have not been convicted.

Nicola Blackwood MP is tabling an amendment to a bill to create Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Orders, similar to anti-social behaviour orders.

The Home Office said that it would consider the campaign's proposals.

The UK has a range of powers designed to control sex offenders, including a general requirement that they inform the authorities of their whereabouts.

'Failing victims'

The main restrictive power, the Sexual Offences Prevention Order (Sopo), can curtail a convicted offender's movements, such as by banning them from parks or from near schools.

But critics say it is hard to impose conditions if they are not immediately sought during sentencing, and impossible for the police to seek to restrict the behaviour of a suspect who hasn't been convicted.

Why bother with the courts they are clearly guilty.

Obviously, everyone likes a good hanging! You can establish guilt post mortem! :blink:
