Yasmin Thomas to be retried for 18th serious assault yet spared Prison
We demand a re trail of Yasmin Thomas or a custodial sentence be given after she committed her 18th crime of assault and battery but was spared prison.
The judge called her criminal history "breathtaking!" Yet released her free back into public life
We feel if this case was involving a male with 17 previous crimes who attacked a female then a custodial sentence would definitely have been given, if not already
Equal rights is a two way street
This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:
E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:
- party political material
- commercial endorsements including the promotion of any product, service or publication
- issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
- correspondence on personal issues
E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.
The following explanatory notes have been added:
As you may be aware The Law Officers (the Attorney General and Solicitor General) have the power to refer sentences passed in respect of certain offences to the Court of Appeal for review where they conclude that a sentence imposed was unduly lenient. Requests for sentences to be reviewed under the Unduly Lenient Scheme cannot be done via the E-Petitions website. Parliament has set out in legislation the offences for which the Law Officers have the power to refer the sentences imposed to the Court of Appeal. These are offences which are triable only in the Crown Court and certain other specified offences. The offence of which Ms Thomas was found guilty, does not fall within these categories and therefore the Law Officers have no power to refer the sentence imposed in this case to the Court of Appeal.
