This enactment amends section 161 of the Criminal Code. Where an offender is convicted of a sexual offence, the enactment permits the court to make an order prohibiting the offender from being in a dwelling house where the offender knows or ought to know that a person under the age of fourteen years is present and that the person having custody or control of the person under the age of fourteen is not present.
