Increase minimum and maximum sentences for child sexual offences

Petition Details

We want the Government to reform minimum and maximum sentences for child sexual offences, so that anyone found guilty of a child sexual offences serves time in prison. We believe too many offenders are given suspended sentences and walk free while their victims suffer for the rest of their lives.

Additional Information

I feel very strongly that penalties for child sexual offenders need to increase. Children who are the victims of child sexual offences have to deal with the abuse they experienced for the rest of their lives. Why should predators get away with ruining somebody's life?
