Did you know 28% of child sex offenders sentenced in Australia last year did not serve one day in jail? That’s just not OK, not even close and it has to change. These offenders are the lowest of the low and we’re going to ensure they go to jail with new mandatory sentencing laws. We owe it to our kids to protect them. What’s more, the most serious offenders could be jailed for life under our new laws we’re going to introduce to Parliament next week.
