I thought the sex offenders register was for life unless they were subsequently found to be innocent? Its got enough signatures at least.

No Jelly, there are different lengths of time people remain on the register.

Imprisonment for a fixed period of 30 months or more, imprisonment for an indefinite period, imprisonment for public protection, admission to hospital under restriction order, or subject to an Order for Lifelong Restriction: Indefinitely
▪Imprisonment for more than 6 months but less than 30 months: 10 years
▪Imprisonment for 6 months or less, or admission to hospital without restriction order: 7 years
▪Caution: 2 years
Conditional discharge or (in Scotland) a probation order: Period of discharge or probation
▪Any other: 5 years
Finite notification periods are halved if the person is under 18 when convicted or cautioned.
In April 2010 the United Kingdom Supreme Court ruled that indefinite notification requirements contained in section 82(1) of the 2003 Act were a breach of individual human rights as they were disproportionate.[4][5] As a result of this, appeals against indefinite inclusion within the register were introduced. Appeals can be made to the local police force by an offender after inclusion on the register for 15 years. If the local police force declines to remove the offender from the register, they may appeal to a magistrates' court.[6]

Sorry for the Wikipedia quote...

I think her parents deserve this to get as far as a parliamentary debate.
