Controlling Innocent People Leads To More Sex Crimes

Warning after sexual offences against children double over a year

"Parliament: Government urged to improve [sic] legislation.

Legislation designed to protect young people from sexual offences is "clearly not working", the Scottish Conservatives have said.

The party is calling for reform after statistics revealed offences against young children have doubled in the past year.

Just 14 Risk of Sexual Harm Orders (RSHOs) have been issued since they were introduced in 2005. And in five cases these orders have been breached [and your point is?].

The Protection of Children and the Prevention of Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2005 brought in the orders to protect children from those who display inappropriate behaviour towards them.

The orders are applied to those who are deemed a risk to children through behaviour which falls short of criminal activity."

Child protection orders 'failing'
