Sex offenders barred from jobs with teenagers

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE - Global Times

Min­hang District Peo­ple’s Procu­ra­torate has launched a new ini­tia­tive to pro­tect ado­les­cents from sex­ual as­sault. Ac­cord­ing to thep­a­, gov­ern­ment de­part­ments in Min­hang district will now pub­licly list sex offenders who have been barred from oc­cu­pa­tions that in­volve work­ing with teenagers. It’s hoped the new mea­sure will en­cour­age other Shang­hai dis­tricts to fol­low suit.

The news fol­lows a case in Novem­ber of 2016 where a male home school teacher was given a 30-month prison sen­tence for kiss­ing a fe­male stu­dent and touch­ing her chest. In the first judg­ment of its kind in Shang­hai, the tu­tor has since been barred from all ed­u­ca­tion-re­lated jobs for three years.
