Sexual Offences Amendment Act Submission

On 31 October RAPCAN joined several other organisations in a joint submission to the Department of Justice and Correctional Services to improve the new Criminal Law, Sexual Offences and Related Matters Amendment Act (Sexual Offences Amendment Act). This amendment results in part due to the successful Constitutional challenge by RAPCAN and The Teddy Bear Clinic to sections 15 and 16 of the act dealing with consensual sexual conduct between adolescents.
