Petition Action

Allow Magistrates to sentence Convicted Animal abusers to the maximum 51 weeks imprisonment.

Additional Information

Currently Magistrates can only sentence animal abusers to a maximum of 6 months imprisonment even though the law has a maximum tariff of 51 weeks.

Because animal abuse cases are prosecuted by the charitable funds of the RSPCA these cases never reach Crown Court where the maximum penalty can be given.

We the petitioners want to see Magistrates being able to fully implement the law and allow sentencing of up to 51 weeks imprisonment for those convicted of Animal abuse.

Regards
