    Sarah’s Law in the United Kingdom

    The programme, known as Sarah’s Law, was created in response to the abduction and murder of eight-year-old Sarah Payne in West Sussex by the convicted sex offender Roy Whiting ten years ago. It will give parents the right to check with the police to discover if someone with regular unsupervised access to their children, including friends and family, has a child-sex conviction.

    The pilot project has been operating in four areas — Warwickshire, Hampshire, Cleveland and Cambridgeshire — for more than a year. It is believed that at least 24 children were found to be at risk from convicted sex attackers.

    Sarah Payne

    Sarah Evelyn Isobel Payne (13 October 1991 – c. 1 July 2000) was murdered by Roy William Whiting (born 26 January 1959) in July 2000. The subsequent investigation became a high profile murder case in the United Kingdom. Following his conviction, Whiting was imprisoned for life and is currently being held in the maximum security Wakefield prison, West Yorkshire.
