Extend the Unduly Lenient Sentence Scheme to cover death by careless driving
At present, it is not possible for people to use the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme to appeal sentences for causing death by careless driving. This should change. Any offence where a defendant's actions take the life of victim should be worthy of a review by the Court of Appeal.
There are too many cases of motorists found guilty of causing death by careless driving receiving unduly lenient sentences. For example, a defendant was recently given a two year sentence after being found guilty of two counts of causing death by careless driving. The public deserve the right to appeal such unjust sentences.
