Closed petition Increase maximum sentences for sex offences including voyeurism

Parliament should review the maximum sentences for voyeurism and other sex crimes and increase them so that they are more impactful.

More details

Voyeurism can be extremely calculated and involve obtaining a huge amount of content. It can involve factors such as the person being known to the perpetrator since they were a child. Sex offences can receive weak sentences that don’t account for the impact on victims. This needs to change.
