Stop the government from reducing rape sentences by half

The government is proposing to reduce rape sentences by a half in return for a guilty plea in England and Wales.  Presently it is cut by a third.  This could potentially mean that some convicted rapists only spend 15 months in jail.  This is a disgrace when they have probably ruined someones life.

I am unable to obtain information regarding rape convictions/guilty pleas in Scotland.  I'm investigating this and will have a seperate petition for this.

Rape is rape and everyones experience is unique and painful to them.

Please sign my petition which I will aim to present it to the government.  It takes 2 mins to sign.

Please invite all your friends to sign the petition to.

Thanks.
