Former Norwich judge’s concern over cautioning sex offenders
Obviously each case turns on its own facts, but there is a real problem with cautioning since it is not designed to prevent re-offending. For a start the perpetrator is not put on the sex offender’s register. In all cases of sexual offending the court would require a probation report to investigate whether a defendant required further treatment or had underlying problems. There is, therefore, no public accountability for such offending."
