The ABC has the concerning news that we’re finally ending pedo friendly legal provisions:
Under law changes introduced in 1951 and 1976, sex offences against children had to go before the courts within 12 months.
It means sex offenders who committed crimes against teenage girls between 1951 and 1985 and boys between 1976 and 1985 can not be prosecuted and brought to justice in the ACT.
Attorney-General Simon Corbell says he is introducing legislation today to close the loophole.
