New Zealand's worst female offenders identified on-line

Press release 18.10.12

New Zealand's worst female offenders identified on-line

The Sensible Sentencing Trust has started up a new section on its online database Sentencing Tracker that list female paedophiles and sex offenders and child killers in New Zealand. The Sentencing Tracker was created by Ross Crosby in February 2009. Mr Crosby is one of two people who operate the Offender Databases on the Sensible Sentencing Trust’s website. Mr Crosby has been a long-time advocate for the New Zealand government to have all the information it holds on violent and sexual offenders made publicly available online.

"I don’t see this as being vindictive, and it’s not so much about naming and shaming, it’s more to promote awareness and trying save victims of crime and potential victims of crime. I firmly believe the public have the right to know about crime and who offenders are," Mr Crosby said.

One of reasons why the Sensible Sentencing Trust started up its own online Offender Databases is because it felt it was the best way to put pressure on the New Zealand government to have all the information it holds on violent and sexual offenders made publicly available online. ENDS
