Sexual Offences: The New Law
The Sexual Offences Bill will, in the words of the British Government, bring about the "most radical overhaul of sex offenses legislation for 50 years". The aim of the new legislation is to provide a coherent and effective legal framework governing sexual offences, while at the same time increasing protection of children and vulnerable persons and imposing greater maximum penalties on offenders. This book is an authoritative guide to the new Act. In addition to the detailed explanatory commentary of the new law, the text of the Act as it applies to England and Wales is included together with annotations.
