Petition Sex crimes against children to receive harsher penalties and mandatory jail time
Paedophiles who arrange to meet children, help facilitate attacks over the internet, download child pornography or sexually abuse children are often getting very little if at all any jail time; this is not a deterrent to those who seek out our children for their own twisted needs.
It's about time paedophiles are scared of the sentences given at court to deter them from their crimes. No crime is victimless; children are abused so others can download the pictures therefore facilitating this crime. Parents and non parents are outraged when a shoplifter can get a heavier sentence than those who destroy the souls of our children and it's about time that stopped.
