Towards a sixth law of the seven years on the sex criminals ?

sponsored by the expression “a fact a variety of = a law”, often used to criticize the security policy of the government, she will have to check again ? Following the disappearance of a young woman in Pornic (Loire-Atlantic), who was allegedly killed by a sex offender, repeat offender, Nicolas Sarkozy, asked, Tuesday, January 25, his government to act. During a visit to Saint-Nazaire, the head of State has estimated that the deal could not stay “without continuation”. “I want to tell you that the history of crime cannot remain unpunished”, has launched Nicolas Sarkozy. “It is no longer possible, it is simply no longer possible, this is unacceptable”. He would have also asked her majority in the margins of a lunch to take “initiatives”. Christian Estrosi, has not left to say. He had hardly known the presidential statement, and while the findings of the investigation have not yet been made, he announced his desire to be “the fastest-finding mission on the improvement of the procedure in respect of persistent offenders”. “It is our duty to ask ourselves : how is it possible that the current provisions do not make a multirécidiviste sentenced fifteen times out of state to harm ?”, asked the deputy-mayor of Nice. Relevant issue : six years , no less than five laws have been enacted on the issue of the recidivism of sex offenders, most at the initiative of Nicolas Sarkozy.

The law Perben II opened the ball, in march 2004. “On the adaptation of justice to developments in crime”, it sets up a file the judicial automated perpetrators of sexual offences. It is immediately followed by the act of 12 December 2005, came after two cases of rape which had taken Nicolas Sarkozy, then minister of the interior, asking about one of the criminals, “how the government can release such a monster ?”. The law expands the notion of recurrence, limit the number of relief, strengthens the national register of sexual offenders, who may ask for drugs, limiting the libido, and allows the “judicial supervision” of certain prisoners after their sentence thanks to the electronic bracelet. Less than two years later, in 2007, while the decrees implementing the previous law have not yet been published (they will not be totally that in 2009), the government opens a new times the site of the recurrence. This time, it is important to set the punishment floor for repeat offenders. Sex offenders may also be subject to care. It is the law Dati, adopted on 11 August 2007. The same month, a case of paedophilia led to Nicolas Sarkozy, who became president of the Republic, to promise “tougher laws against sex criminals are habitual offenders. It’s something made in 2008. Nicolas Sarkozy’s request to Rachida Dati a measure to continue to monitor for certain types of dangerous offenders even after their sentence. The law relating to security detention and to the declaration of criminal liability because a mental disorder is passed in February 2008, after a dispute between the head of State and the constitutional Council, which has refused to make its application retroactive. “This is important to me, is that we do not let monsters to be released after they have completed their sentence,” says Nicolas Sarkozy. The following year, in 2009, following a new deal involving a criminal sexual offender, Nicolas Sarkozy considers that there is an “absolute need to continue the action undertaken in the fight against recidivism”. Brice Hortefeux, and Michèle Alliot-Marie have been working on a new law, which will be voted on march 11, 2010. It aims at improving the previous one, introducing the possibility of “castration” of a sex offender, repeat offender, and strengthening a third time, the national file of these offenders. According to the commission of control of the application of the laws of the Senate, no decree of application of the text of the 11 march 2010 has not yet been published in the official Journal on the date of January 25, 2011. Perhaps an answer to the question of Mr Estrosi, on the lack of effectiveness “of the provisions in force”. As for the other laws, most specialists estimate that it will take several years before being able to assess their effectiveness, like that of the punishment floor. A number of mps from the UMP party have also shown a certain lack of enthusiasm. Their leader, Christian Jacob, close to Jean-François Copé, has expressed its opposition to “any law of opportunity”, providing, however, want to set up a working group here may. His vice-president, the centrist Jean Leonetti, has estimated for its part that “the outrage is unanimous, but we must not be a reaction to legislative immediate”. He pleads for “a more comprehensive and more calming than trying to react and find a culprit, even if there has been a failure in the system”. Samuel Laurent
