Enable those lacking capacity to stand trial to be registered as sex offenders

Petition Details

I want people who lack capacity to be taken to court to be able to be added to the sex offenders register, where there is clear evidence a sexual offence has been committed.

Additional Information

Some people are getting away with disgusting crimes, because they lack the capacity to be questioned by the police or stand trial. If they were able to be registered as sex offenders, where there is clear evidence a sexual offence has been committed, appropriate safeguarding could be put in place.
