Police welcome sentence given to sex offender

Issued: 28 Sep 2010

NORTHERN Constabulary welcomes the 27 month sentence given today to Ernest Dorans.

A spokeperson said: "Police, the local council and their partnership agencies work closely together to manage sex offenders living in our communities. We are aware of the public concern and anxiety which exists regarding these matters. The inter agency approach aims to ensure the most effective monitoring and that the correct balance is achieved between the rights of individuals to privacy and rehabilitation and the rights of children and vulnerable adults to be protected from abuse. The sentence today underlines the effectiveness of the multi-agency public protection arrangements in place in this case."
