Abstract

This article examines Pt 2 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, which introduces three new civil preventative orders. Sexual offences prevention orders are the successors of sex offender orders (introduced by s.2 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998) and restraining orders (introduced by s. 66 of the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000). Foreign travel orders will allow the courts to impose travel restrictions on sex offenders who might wish to visit countries where they would be at risk of abusing children. Risk of sexual harm orders, which are also designed to protect children from sexual harm, can be imposed on persons who have no convictions of any kind.
