Tough rules for WA sex pests
CONVICTED child sex offenders may be forced to move from their own homes under new laws proposed by the West Australian government.
Police Minister Rob Johnson says that under the proposed changes, courts will be able to compel a reportable child sex offender to stop living near their victims, schools or childcare centres.
The laws would also enable police to better monitor such offenders' compliance with conditions set by courts, he said yesterday.
Mr Johnson said he would introduce legislation into parliament this week to ensure Child Protection Prohibition Orders (CPPOs) were more effective in prohibiting certain types of behaviour and ensuring children's safety.
"Under the proposed changes, courts will be able to compel a reportable offender to do certain things, rather than just prohibiting certain types of conduct," he said.
Mr Johnson said the laws would complement moves to introduce a public sex offender register in WA.
The proposed changes include prohibiting reportable offenders from living at specific places, including their own homes if necessary.
They would also require such offenders to seek the permission of WA's police commissioner before changing address or travelling outside Australia.
Offenders could also be required to undergo psychological treatment and submit to drug and alcohol testing.
Authorised police officers may also enter a reportable offender's premises once a year to inspect computers, where the court has ordered that that offender may not use the internet.
Penalties for breaching the court conditions would increase from two years to five years.
