Sex Offenders Should Get Max 30 Years! Declares Government Senator

Kingston, Jamaica (McN) – Senator Matthew Samuda has called for Jamaican legislative changes so convicted sex offenders can serve up to 30 years in prison.

The call follows recent startling revelations by head of the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) Superintendent Enid Ross Stewart that statistics show pastors and policemen, being the main perpetrators of sexual abuse, in cases involving underage children.

She made the presentation to the joint select committee of parliament which is reviewing the sexual offences act, and other related legislation.

Speaking about social morality in the senate yesterday, senator Samuda said in light of this the government should change the law in order for convicted sex offenders to get longer prison sentences.

n the meantime, senator Samuda said it was troubling about the revelations made by CISOCA that the majority of sex offenders are pastors and police men.

He added that despite this revelation there are good officers of the law and pastors.

Senator Samuda added that the authorities must be assisted in the fight against sex offenders.
