Criminal Offence – Failure to Report Belief of Child Sexual Offence

In Queensland, an adult commits a crime if they

  • have a reasonable belief that another adult
  • is committing (in the present) or has committed (in the past) a child sexual offence
  • the adult fails to disclose the information to a police officer as soon as reasonably practicable
  • unless they have a reasonable excuse for not reporting it to the police.

(Maximum penalty – 3 years imprisonment)

** If a child is in immediate danger or risk of harm, contact the police directly and without delay.
