The South Australian government will introduce stringent laws to keep serial child sex offenders imprisoned indefinitely.
Premier Peter Malinauskas said the new laws will keep “dangerous, repeat offender paedophiles” behind bars “forever” unless they can prove “they are willing to control their sexual interests”.
“We will be introducing legislation into the State Parliament in March that will see repeat child sex offenders put away for the rest of their [lives],” Mr Malinauskas told media earlier this week.
“That is to say, that will be in jail indefinitely.”
“Our community is rightly sick of seeing paedophiles offending again and again and then being released back into the community,” Mr Malinauskas told media.
