This week, our Government passed important new laws to ensure child sex offenders go to jail for at least a mandatory minimum sentence.
No group in our community is more deserving of our protection than our children.
Last year, 39% of convicted child sex offenders did not spend one day in jail. That’s just not ok, not even close.
For nearly three years we have been fighting to introduce mandatory sentencing for child sex offenders.
Unfortunately, it has taken Labor all this time to come to its senses and support the introduction of mandatory minimum sentences for these grubs.
Mandatory sentencing is going to give Police and prosecutors the strong laws they need to keep our kids safe.
