New laws for serious Vic sex offenders
- September 01, 2015
Premier Daniel Andrews said new laws would be introduced to make sure serious offenders weren't out in the community if they were still a danger. "I do believe there are too many of these serious sex offenders in the Victorian community," he told reporters on Tuesday. Price, a serial sex offender with a history of violent attacks, murdered Masa Vukotic, 17, in a Doncaster park in March. Mr Andrews said no one could guarantee another attack like that wouldn't occur. "But we all owe it to that family, to the Vukotic family, to look them in the eye and say we'll learn from their pain, learn from their tragedy," he said. The government will introduce new laws to create a presumption against bail for any serious sex offender on a supervision order who is charged with any indictable offence.
