Abstract

The Tasmanian Liberal Party made a pre-election commitment to impose minimum mandatory sentences for those who commit serious sexual offences against children with a view to protecting children from sexual abuse. In October 2015, the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, the Hon Vanessa Goodwin MLC requested that the Sentencing Advisory Council provide a report on the implementation of minimum mandatory sentencing for those who commit serious sexual offences against children, including advice as to which offences should be captured within the scope of the mandatory sentencing provisions and what those mandatory minimum sentences should be.
