Increase sentences for those who commit crime

Additional Information

Scrap automatic release after serving half a sentence. Scrap early guilty plea discount of 1/3 off jail time. Ensure that those who continuously commit crimes are sent to prison for a lengthy time, there’s no incentive for people to stop committing crimes as a community order is ineffective. Adopt a minimum length of jail term for those who found guilty of murder to 20 years imprisonment to life. Increase minimum sentence of rape to minimum of 7 years. After having continuously been found guilty of low level crimes the defendant should be incarcerated for long periods of time. No early release for those serving 5 years or under and those serving over 5 years have to serve a minimum of 75% of their sentence before even considered for release on licence. No day releases for violent or high level offence ie robbery, burglary, sexual offences etc. A full review and a promise from the government to reform the criminal justice system and sentencing ranges.
