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.
