Convicted rapists should get longer sentences than they are at the moment.

Additional Information

In the last week I have read at least 3 stories about rape in the UK.

A paedophile raping a girl over 400 times.
Three men raping two 16 year old girls.
A man raping a pregnant woman in her own home.

The sentences were 12 years, 7.5 years and 6 years respectively.

I believe that these sentences are much too lenient, the victims of rape will NEVER forgot what happened to them.

A man who committed 4 non-aggravated burglaries recently got sent to prison for 6 years, but a man who forced himself onto a pregnant woman, and forced sex onto her, got the same length of jail time?

This is wrong, and needs to be looked at by parliament.
