Changes to Criminal Justice System to Increase the Conviction Rate of Child Sexual Assualt Offenders

Australia’s state governments are considering a radical overhaul of the criminal justice system aimed at improving the conviction rate in cases of child sexual assault.


If the plan goes ahead, specialist courts would be established to ensure sexually abused Aboriginal children are not intimidated into silence by the formality of traditional courts.

New rules could also be introduced to ensure that convicted pedophiles would not be able to rejoin society unless they had completed rehabilitation programs.

The reform plan has been produced by the National Child Sexual Assault Reform Committee (NCSARC), which is made up of some of the nation’s leading lawyers, judges and academics.
