Minimum non-parole period for offence of sexual intercourse without consent

    (1)     If a court sentences an offender to be imprisoned for a specified offence for 12 months or longer, that is not suspended in whole or in part, the court must, under section 53(1), fix a period of not less than 70% of the period of imprisonment that the offender is to serve under the sentence.

    (2)     However, subsection (1) does not apply if, under section 53(1), the court considers that the fixing of a non-parole period is inappropriate.

    (3)     In this section:

"specified offence" means:

        (a)     an offence against section 208H of the Criminal Code; or

        (b)     an offence against section 192(3) of the Criminal Code, as in force before the commencement of Part 2 of the Criminal Justice Legislation Amendment (Sexual Offences) Act 2023 .
