Petition Increase minimum and maximum sentences for all sexual offences

I believe that the current sentence for people who have committed rape, who have groomed people or those who have sexually assaulted another member of the public is not long enough, and victims of these crimes deserve to get their justice.

More details

A lot victims of these crimes do not come forward as they do not believe that the time that their offenders will receive is long enough, and I would like to bring this up as something that should be changed. Sexual assault, child sexual abuse, grooming and rape does not receive sufficient sentences, where as other offences with less significant harm to others does. I strongly believe that people who are victims of these above stated offences do not get the justice that they receive.
