It finished the Parliamentary process last week, and is now the Sexual Offences Act 2003. Its provisions are expected to come into force in May 2004.
You can see my quick guide to most of it here (long!), with the actual Act here (longer!)
As well as changing some of the offences, they've extended the 'sex offenders register' and if you read nothing else, read this: do not accept even a caution for a sexual offence unless you have taken legal advice and are absolutely sure you would be put on trial if you declined and would be convicted.
Let's have another poll to see if they got it right :)
The Lords wanted someone accused of a sexual offence to be anonymous until charged, but the Commons rejected this and it's not in the Act. Were the Lords right?
Should it be ok to possess an idecent image of an imaginary child?
Should it be ok for adults to shag their aunt/uncle / adult neice/nephew?
Thanks to some lobbying by naturists, exposure (flashing) now needs you to /intend/ to cause offence, not just know that offence is caused
