    Abstract

    Few categories of offender invoke as strong a response as sex offenders. There is a public desire to do something about sex offenders, which is taken seriously by politicians of all persuasions. One way governments have responded is by increasing the length of time sex offenders spend behind bars. For example, most Australian states and territories now allow for dangerous sex offenders such as Edward Latimer, who committed numerous offences against adult victims to be kept in custody after their sentences have ended.
