B1561 – Child Sex Offences Bill 2020: LiberofLondon MP




An Act to provide for whole-life tariffs for paedophiles.

BE IT ENACTED by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—


1) Definitions

For the purposes of this Act:—

a) "child sex offence” shall refer to an offence under sections 5-19A, 25, 26, 45, and 47-50 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003.
b) "whole-life sentence" shall refer to a sentence given to an offender, to be served for the duration of his life and without possibility of parole or release.
c) "paedophile” shall refer to a criminal that commits a child sex offence.


2) Sentencing

a) Should a paedophile be convicted he is to be given a whole-life sentence, regardless of at whatever age he committed a child sex offence.
b) Section 269 (4) of the Criminal Justice Act shall not apply to paedophiles and Section 2 (a) of this Bill shall apply instead.


3) Closeness of Age

a) Sex acts where both participants are over the age of 13 and consent to the given act, and where the older participant is not more than three years older than the younger participant, shall not be considered sex acts.

4) Extent, Commencement and Short Title

a) This Bill extends to the whole of the United Kingdom
b) The provisions of this Bill come into force on Royal Assent.
c) This Bill may be cited as the Child Sex Offences Bill 2020.

Notes:
Mr Speaker, the rape or sexual abuse of a child is one of the gravest acts that can be committed by a member of society. By the very nature of child sex abuse it prohibits the abuser from being a member of civilised society, and means that the abuser cannot safely be a member of society. It is essential that we prevent people who have done these immeasurable harms to children from being released from prison and committing similar acts, and this Bill does that. Mr Speaker, I urge all members of this House who oppose paedophilia and these deplorable crimes to vote Aye on this bill.

Section 269 (4) of the Criminal Justice Act prevents paedophiles under 21 from receiving a life sentence - a dangerous state of affairs when they can commit their wicked acts in society.

Changes for Division:
A concern that was raised during this Bill's first reading was the risk that teenagers could be jailed for being in a relationship. This has been fixed and a ”Romeo and Juliet law” has been put in place to avoid this occuring.
