Persistent Sexual Abuse of a Child is an offence under Section 66EA of the Crimes Act 1900 which carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.

An ‘unlawful sexual relationship’ is where an adult engages in 2 or more ‘unlawful sexual acts’ with or towards a child over any period.
An ‘unlawful sexual act’ includes, but is not limited to:
The prosecution does not need to specify the nature of the unlawful sexual acts that are alleged and jurors do not need to agree on the sexual acts that occurred.
It is immaterial that one or more of the acts occurred outside NSW provided that at least one of them occurred within the state.
