Submission to the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee of the Australian Senate, concerning the Criminal Code Amendment (Misrepresentation of Age to a Minor) Bill 2013 - February 2014

As argued previously, intending to commit a crime is not itself a crime, and should not be made a crime. If crimes have occurred, they are what a person should be charged with. If they haven't, a person should not be charged for what he or she merely has in mind as a plan. NSWCCL recommends that this Bill should be rejected.
