Paedophiles 'not being convicted'

PUBLISHED November 16, 2004

The government has made little progress in bringing child sex abusers to justice and helping victims, a new report has claimed.

Children in care are safer, but fewer than one in 50 sexual offences leads to a criminal conviction, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation charity said.
Its study was overseen by Sir William Utting, who led an official review of abuse of children in care in 1997.
