Schedule 15 Amendment of Summary Offences Act 1988 No 25
Omit “50 penalty units” from section 11G (1).
Insert instead “100 penalty units”.
This amendment doubles the monetary penalty that may be imposed on a convicted child sexual offender for the offence of loitering near a school or a public place frequented by children. This will bring the monetary penalty into line with the monetary penalty that may be imposed on a prohibited person under section 6 of the Child Protection (Prohibited Employment) Act 1998 for the offence of applying for, undertaking or remaining in child-related employment.
