"Given that a large percentage of child sex-offences are apparently committed by family members or people known to the family"

I don't want to get into typing huge post dealing with everything that's wrong with this idiotic 'Sarah's Law' idea but I just thought I'd say that this bit of what you said is dead right. Child protection workers have been making that point a lot. the *vast* majority of child abuse is committed within a child's circle of family and friend, attacks by strangers are a tiny, tiny percentage. All this hoo-haa is ignoring the real problem, drawing attention, and funds away from it in order to appease newspapers and hysterical parents. People who really think children should be able to live free from the fear of abuse should think about that rather than screaming at bastions of toy-town democray such as radio phone-ins, newspaper letter pages and ridiculous daytime TV discussion shows.
