Managing persons accused or convicted of a sexual offence: Council of Europe issues new guidelines

The Council of Europe today issued a Recommendation to its 47 members states containing new guidelines regarding the assessment, management and reintegration of persons accused or convicted of a sexual offence.

Adopted by the Committee of Ministers, the Recommendation aims to guide national authorities in their legislation, policies, and practice to prevent and reduce sexual reoffending.

The Committee of Ministers recommends that risk assessments, treatments and intervention plans be individually tailored to persons accused or convicted of sexual offences.

Prison services and probation agencies should manage and seek to reintegrate persons accused or convicted of a sexual offence in line with the risk they pose. Therefore, the focus should be on an individual’s distinct needs rather than the type of offence committed, especially concerning interventions or treatments.
