South Australia to introduce strictest laws for child sex offense

South Australia (SA) is about to introduce the strictest laws against child sex crimes to ensure pedophiles spend the rest of their lives in prison. Pedophiles are people who sexually abuse young children.

Under the new laws, repeat offenders will only get bail if the court determines they can control their sexual inclinations. Authorities will also keep them under electronic monitoring even if the court grants them bail.

However, the legislation would only apply to people convicted of child sex crime for the second time. Kyam Maher is an Attorney General of South Australia. He introduced the law in parliament today in the afternoon with opposition support.

Kyam said if you are a filthy monster who preys on children, you will now be facing the harshest penalties in the state of South Australia.

He also stated if you commit these types of crimes against children, the government will take you off the street for the longest possible period. Hence, you can’t do this to other children.

Sonya Ryan is the founder of “The Carly Ryan Foundation,” an organization to ensure internet safety for children. Sonya also expressed gratitude to see action taken on behalf of the government to protect the community and vulnerable children.

According to Sonya, pedophiles pose a real threat to their children they are opportunistic offenders. So, they need to be managed appropriately.

Hence, the government of South Australia is about to introduce the strictest laws. These laws target repeat child sex offenders to keep them off the streets for the sake of children’s safety.
