SASS submission - Mandatory Treatment for Sex Offenders

6 July 2016

SASS welcomed the opportunity to provide feedback to the Tasmanian  Sentencing Advisory Council on Dr R. Bradfield’s Draft Research Paper: Mandatory Treatment for Sex Offenders. Specifically, we recommended that treatment remained voluntary, advocated for flexible, individualised programs, and expressed our concern regarding the lack of post-release supervision for high-risk offenders.
