Sexual Offences Guideline: Other sexual offences
This is part of a wider consultation on a new guideline for sentencing sexual offences.
The offences that will be dealt with in this part of the consultation are:
- sex with an adult relative; and
- preparatory offences (administering a substance with intent; committing an offence with intent to commit a sexual offence; and trespass with the intent to commit a sexual offence).
This section will also highlight the approach that the council intends to take in relation to offences committed a long time ago, which will be referred to as “historic” sexual offences.
The draft guidelines are for offenders who are 18 years of age and over.
What Happens Next
Following the conclusion of this consultation exercise, a response will be published on our website.
