Tougher Sentence's for 'One Punch Manslaughter'

We would like the Criminal Justice System to review the sentencing guidance for 'One Punch Manslaughter'. The maximum sentence for 'One Punch Manslaughter'is 8 years. It is time for a change in the law, so sentences better fit the enormity of the crime and in some way act as a deterrent.

Crimes which result in death should be treated more seriously, so as to ensure that the increased focus on the fact that the victim has diedas aconsequence of an unlawful act of violence, particularly were the perpetrator has a history of violence.

Joe McDermottaged 52 years; died 93 days after being punched once to the head in a totally unprovoked attack.The person responsible for killing Joe was at the time on bail for assaulting a woman 4 weeks earlier.

Joe’s killer was sentenced to 7 years which was reduced to 4 years 8 months because he pleaded 'GUILTY' of which the judge said he would serve 2 years 4 months.

PLEASE!!! Sign our petition to avoid any other family receiving this kind of justice.
