Sexual Offences: Prisoners Release

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many people who had been convicted of a sexual offence in Northern Ireland since 2005 were subjected to MASRAM supervision after release and were subsequently found guilty of a further offence. (252960)

In 2005, the latest year for which re-conviction data can be made available, 71 persons were released from immediate custody or disposed of by a community sentence for a sexual offence. All cases would have been risk assessed and managed under the MASRAM arrangements. The latest figures show none of these persons were re-convicted of a further sexual offence within a two year period.
