    My name is Sarah Parker from Immanuel College and as a part of my Year 12 SACE studies this year, I am taking part in Legal Studies. As part of a large assessment I’m studying the question, “Are sex offenders in South Australia being dealt with in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of sanctioning?” I was wondering if you could please take a few minutes out of your time to answer a few questions. It would be greatly appreciated!
    Gaining a variety of primary resources I can identify key information and ideas that websites wouldn’t usually have. The possibility of being able to provide such key information is important and it also describes my goals in undertaking the research.
    1. With regard to the rule of law, do you believe each sex offender is being treated equally before the law? Why/why not?
    2. To what extent do you believe the South Australian criminal justice system achieves a good balance between punishing and rehabilitating sex offenders?
    3. To what extent do you believe the media deters future sex offenders?
    4. With regard to protecting the public from sex offenders, should a national registry of sex offenders be introduced?
    5. What are the primary issues with the way the South Australian criminal justice system currently deals with sex offenders?

    I appreciate your cooperation, and through responding your answers are giving me consent to use your responses in my project.
    Thank you!
    Sarah Parker

    Is the financial compensation only for Victorians ?
